The Hague: Former Ivory Coast leader, Laurent Gbagbo, a 'scapegoat'
Wednesday 20 February 2013
A lawyer for former Ivory Coast President Laurent Gbagbo has told International Criminal Court judges that prosecutors are making him a “scapegoat” for deadly violence that erupted after his country’s disputed 2010 elections.
Mr Gbagbo’s lawyer, Emmanuel Altit, claimed at a pre-trial hearing in The Hague that prosecutors are focused solely on one side of the post-election violence.
But they say they are conducting an impartial investigation into violence which resulted in 3,000 deaths.
