 “Ex-President Gbagbo, Right-Hand Man Blé Goudé Free To Return To Ivory Coast” -President Ouattara

Te President of Ivory Coast, Mr Alassane Ouattara has said his predecessor, Mr Laurent Gbagbo and his youth leader, Mr Charles Blé Goudé are free to return to Ivory Coast after they were acquitted of crimes against humanity.

President Ouattara’s remarks came a week after the International Criminal Court (ICC) upheld ex-President Gbagbo’s judgement with appeal Judges confirming that he was finally in the clear over a wave of post-electoral violence in 2010-2011.

Reports say ex-President Gbagbo has been living in Brussels under the ICC’s orders since his release from detention in 2019. 

The 75-year-old has retained strong support at home despite spending years behind bars in The Hague, and has been positioning himself for a potential comeback since last year.
