CPI: According to Mediapart, Here Is The “Cabal” Behind The Arrest Of Laurent Gbagbo


According to Mediapart, A confidential document of French diplomacy reveals that the International Criminal Court has requested in April 2011 to keep the President of Côte d’Ivoire, Laurent Gbagbo, in prison. Only at that time there was neither a warrant for arrest nor a referral to the ICC. Revelations about an operation in the air of Francafrique.

The newspaper Mediapart publishes an article on alleged collusion between the ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo, French diplomacy and the power of Alassane Ouattara in the aftermath of the post-electoral crisis in Côte d’Ivoire. Journalists in the online media were able to consult documents that testify to an assembly designed by the former prosecutor to transfer the former Ivorian head of state, Laurent Gbagbo, behind bars in The Hague.

Mediapart reveals “the proofs of a montage” in the Gbagbo trial and recounts an “operation with the airs of Françafrique”. The newspaper, on Thursday evening, posted a “confidential” document from the Quai d’Orsay, which “reveals”, he writes, that “the International Criminal Court in April 2011 asked to keep the President of Côte d’Ivoire Ivoire, Laurent Gbagbo.


Selon Mediapart, Laurent Gbagbo est victime d’un montage politico-judiciaire ourdi par le procureur de la CPI, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, et quelques diplomates français. D’après l’article, au moment de l’arrestation de l’ex-chef d’Etat ivoirien, le 11 avril 2011, dans sa résidence de Cocody, la Côte d’Ivoire n’avait pas encore ratifié le statut de Rome qui préside à l’adhésion du pays à la Cour pénale internationale.

Ce qui n’a pas empêché, affirme le média en ligne, l’équipe d’Ocampo de demander à la diplomatie française – en l’occurrence le directeur Afrique du Quai d’Orsay – que Ouattara ne relâche pas Gbagbo le temps qu’un Etat de la région renvoie l’affaire à la CPI au plus vite.

For Mediapart, the prosecutor Ocampo then has no legal basis to try to incriminate Laurent Gbagbo in the past exactions. And still according to the media, exchanges between Ocampo, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Camp Ouattara are not insignificant at the time.

It is even evidence, say our confreres, that the prosecutor of the institution oversteps his duty of reserve by collaborating with certain protagonists of the crisis at the expense of others. “What about the impartiality and independence of Ocampo? “Mediapart asks.
