The UN Representative in Guinea-Bissau on Friday called "calm and serenity" there after the US charged its former military chief with drug trafficking and seeking to sell arms to Colombian rebels.
"The government and the armed forces must remain calm. It would be counter-productive to react," Jose Ramos Horta, a former president of East Timor, told journalists.
"True or false, the accusations made against General Indjai must respect the principle of law that presumes innocence," he added.
"Just because someone says A or B, that does not make him guilty."
