Ivory Coast Ex-President’s ICC Case Postponed To November 12

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has on Wednesday postponed to November a hearing on Ivory Coast former president Laurent Gbagbo’s bid for release after defence lawyers said they needed more time.


On Monday the court based in The Hague began dealing with Mr. Gbagbo’s application to be acquitted of crimes against humanity and to be freed after seven years in detention.

The hearings were meant to end on Friday, but lawyers for the former President and his right-hand man Charles Ble Goude asked for more time.

Judge Cuno Tarfusser granted the request, setting the new hearing for November 12
