Côte d’Ivoire: Justice for 2010-11 Crimes Stagnates
Rights Groups Urge President to Support Fair, Credible Trials
Monday 07 May 2018
(Abidjan, May 8, 2018) -- Côte d’Ivoire’s President, Alassane Ouattara, should do more to fulfill his promise of justice for victims of the country’s 2010-11 post-election crisis, 10 national and international human rights groups said today in a joint letter to the president.
Ouattara, who was sworn for his first term seven years ago, has said repeatedly that, “there will be no impunity in Côte d’Ivoire.” But no one has been held accountable in Ivorian courts for the war crimes and likely crimes against humanity committed during the crisis.
