An international arrest warrant was issued against the former Prime Minister and former speaker of the National Assembly by Ivorian justice for two charges.
The first charge concerns “attempt to undermine the authority of the State and the integrity of the national territory”, said Monday evening on Ivorian television Richard Adou, the prosecutor of the Republic. For this, he said he relied on information in the possession of the intelligence services, including a recording that has not been made public. “This destabilization project” was to be implemented immediately, Richard Adou said.
The other charge id related to “misappropriation of public property” to the tune of one and a half billion CFA francs. The period during which this misappropriation allegedly took place was not specified.
