Laurent Gbagbo will soon be released from the ICC (International Criminal Court) as announced by François Soudan or will he be kept in prison, as the president of the court said last September?
Guest of ‘RFI’ on 1st of October 2017, Francois Soudan, the reporter of young Africa made a most surprising revelation about the departure of the former Ivorian President Laurent Gbagbo of the ICC (International Criminal Court). The editorial director of Jeune Afrique has announced that Laurent Gbagbo will be released at the end of 2017 or early 2018: ” My sources are formal, Laurent Gbagbo could leave the ICC at the end of 2017, early 2018 ” -he declares.
This statement by the journalist of young Africa gives an enormous hope to the supporters of Laurent Gbagbo who were already beginning to show some signs of discouragement following the refusal of the International Criminal Court to grant provisional release to Laurent Gbagbo. The supporters of the former Ivorian head of state seem galvanized with this new statement of François Soudan.
Here is who revives the subject of the release of Laurent Gbagbo. And according to François Soudan everything is not yet finished. The release of Laurent Gbagbo will be effective in a few months. The journalist justified his optimism with regard to the information circulating in his favor in the high circles of decisions on his case.
