Ivory Coast's Gbagbo awaits crucial ICC decision on acquittal

FRANCE24, 31 Mar 2021
The International Criminal Court will rule on Wednesday whether to uphold the acquittal of #IvoryCoast's former president Laurent #Gbagbo, the first head of state to stand trial at the tribunal. Gbagbo, 75, and his former youth leader Charles Ble Goude were cleared of #crimes against humanity in 2019 over a wave of post-electoral violence in the west African nation more than a decade ago. The prosecution has appealed against the acquittal and wants a retrial over the bloodshed, when more than 3,000 people were killed after Gbagbo disputed the results of the 2010 vote. #ICC
