ICC: Ex-Ivory Coast president Gbagbo can leave Belgium

Ivory Coast’s former president Laurent Gbagbo can leave Belgium under certain conditions, the International Criminal Court said Thursday, following his acquittal last year over post-election violence that killed 3,000 people.
Gbagbo, the first head of state to stand trial in The Hague, and his deputy Charles Ble Goude were cleared in early 2019 of crimes against humanity — eight years after the former West African strongman’s arrest and transfer to the court.Belgium had agreed to host Gbagbo after he was released under strict conditions, including his return to court for a prosecution appeal against his acquittal.
