A pan-African movement has just been created, the Pan-African Civil Society Front (Fispa), which was launched in Bamako last weekend. This grouping of several African citizens has decided not to leave unpunished the assassination of Muhammar Gaddafi, late defendant of the Libyan Jamarihiya.
By this first major action, Fispa plans to charge former French President Nicolas Sarkozy his alleged role in the assassination of Muhammar Gaddafi. “We bring this complaint against Nicolas Sarkozy for the assassination of Gaddafi because it has dramatic and harmful consequences on the African continent, and on the African populations,” reacted on RFI Guinean activist Elie Kamano, a member of Fispa.
The assassination in 2011 of Muhammar Gaddafi left the door open to a real chaos in Libya. Apart from the ensuing economic crisis, the country is now a safe disaster. Transformed into a benchmark of jihadists and traffickers of all kinds, Libya must also face a political dilemma between two rival governments.
According to the Ivorian reggaeman Tiken Jah Fakoly, who is the sponsor of this organization, which includes about 15 movements, the eyes are turned towards the ICC. “If the ICC does not react, it would mean that the ICC chooses its clients”
More than five years after his loss of power in France, Nicolas Sarkozy finds it hard to get rid of the scandals françafricains in which he is frequently quoted. The latest is a stunning case also involving the ICC and revealed by the French site Mediapart.
The media has also shown how France, then governed by Nicolas Sarkozy, acted in collusion with former ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo, to have Laurent Gbagbo, former Ivorian head of state, transferred to the Court, without the issuance of an arrest warrant.
It was during an interview with Mediapart that Laurent Gbagbo had accused two French heads of state, Nicolas Sarkozy and his predecessor Jacques Chirac, of having “sabotaged” his presidency.
