Gbagbo Moved To ICC At The Hague

Former Ivorian President Laurent Gbagbo has been moved to the International Criminal Court  at The Hague, after weeks of investigation in Cote d’Ivoire.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Ivorians woke up on Wednesday to realise that the former president had been transferred from Khorhogo, where he was under house arrest for seven months to The Hague.

A communiqué issued by the Ivorian Prosecutor, Kouadio Simplice, said the ICC had directed the opening of investigation into the human rights abuses in Cote d’Ivoire in the months that the former president refused to hand over power after losing election.

The communique, read by a representative of the prosecutor, Dje Noel, said the ICC had demanded an investigation into the real cause of the Ivorian political crisis and the actors behind the abuse of human rights.
