Ex-Ivorian Leader, Laurent Gbagbo, regains freedom, freed by ICC

ICC judges ruled on Tuesday that Gbagbo had no case to answer and ordered his immediate release.
Prosecutors had failed to demonstrate “the existence of a ‘common plan’ to keep Mr Gbagbo in power” which included crimes against civilians, or a “policy to attack a civilian population”, the ICC said.
Presiding Judge Cuno Tarfusser said the prosecution had also “failed to demonstrate that public speeches by Gbagbo constituted ordering or inducing the alleged crimes”.
