    Fatou Bensouda: The ‘Shadow’ of the ICC




    1 comment

    There was a UN resolution clearly stipulating that the presidential elections could not take place in Côte-d'Ivoire until after the disarmament of the rebels was completed. That resolution specifically authorized the elections to be held only two months after the disarmament was completed. This measure was purposely put in place after years of negotiations by President Laurent Gbagbo, to protect the lives of the people of Côte-d'Ivoire. But Mr. Ban Ki-Moon along with Nicolas Sarkozy (former French President) forced President Laurent Gbagbo to hold elections prior to the disarmament, hence giving the leverage and every opportunity to the rebels to use their weapons, illegal forces and terror to impose their will to the people of Côte-d'Ivoire.
