The 1995 São Tomé and Príncipe coup d'état was an attempted military coup on August 15, 1995. The coup was launched against the government of President Miguel Trovoada, and was led by Lieutenant Manuel Quintas de Almeida. The immediate cause of the coup was a long, 6-month delay in the soldiers' salary, poor supply and living conditions of the soldiers. However, under pressure from the international community, the military returned power to Trovoada on August 22.
