Laurent GBAGBO expelled from Belgium for Ivory Coast

A President of the Republic without papers in Europe! These are the incongruities of the decision rendered by the ICC.

The residence permit of the former Ivorian head of state has expired since the end of April.

Laurent Gbagbo is therefore no longer in a regular situation in Belgium. And even if he continues to reside in Brussels, he can no longer make even a transfer or withdrawal of money with his expired residence permit. If he falls under police control, he can be locked up in a detention center and deported to his country of origin, Côte d'Ivoire.

By agreeing to receive Laurent Gbagbo on its territory, so that he can enjoy his conditional freedom there, Belgium granted him a residence permit for three months (90 days). The time that the former president is fixed on his fate with regard to the continuation of the procedure; a possible appeal by the ICC prosecutor against the decision of acquittal and immediate release of the court's pre-trial chamber. But until now, Laurent Gbagbo's administrative situation has still not been regularized because of…the ICC!

The ICC has indicated that the registry is already in contact with the Belgian authorities regarding the renewal of Laurent Gbagbo's residence permit, reported Koaci's colleagues who contacted the institution. "Concerning the conditional release of Mr. Gbagbo, and your question on the residence permit: this is a normal procedure concerning the residence permit in Belgium, which is renewed every 3 months. The ICC Registry is in contact with the Belgian authorities on a regular basis and is confident that this permit will be renewed. “, assured the media, the spokesperson for the ICC, Fadi El Abdallah.

According to the same source, the judges of the preliminary chamber of the Court should no longer delay in filing "the written version of the decision" for the rest of the procedure. She also recalls that “the Prosecutor will have 30 days thereafter to decide whether to appeal or not”.

Laurent Gbagbo and Charles Blé Goudé were acquitted by the ICC Pre-Trial Chamber for insufficient evidence against them. They were both acquitted of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed during the 2011 post-election crisis in Côte d'Ivoire. They were released in February by the appeals chamber but under conditions pending the judges' report for a possible appeal by Bensouda Fatou. They are banned from returning to their homes in Côte d'Ivoire and forced to wander around European countries.

The ICC no longer knows on which foot to dance. Former Minister Charles Blé Goudé has already refused three host countries offered to him and continues to stay at the hotel. Laurent Gbagbo now finds himself without papers in Belgium, which is not obliged to continue to welcome him and can order his expulsion or his escort to the border. Fatou Bensouda has two immediate solutions that she could always consider: either she lets Laurent Gbagbo go home to Côte d'Ivoire, or she welcomes him home.



  1. The only people who sell your resources to the whites are your own countrymen. In the meantime, there are many in Europe who take advantage of the resources of whites. It's good that they're giving you work. You have your independence but what do you do with it?! Nothing vs are hypocrites. You constantly spit in the soup you serve. Other than that you are really European. Real racists in disguise. That's why you have to clear vs.

    1. What do you call independence? Have you asked your rulers and they have confirmed what you are saying. You who talk about work, what good work do you give them? How many Koreans, Japanese, do you know who do the type of work you're talking about back home? These are independent. How many military bases do you have in South Africa? in Iran? These are independent sir!

      1. You Europeans are the hypocrites. If not, how to explain that they say that we are independent when we cannot even decide ourselves the prices of our raw materials. They buy them from us at the price that suits them, and steal others behind our backs, since all the technique and the necessary technology still remain for them. You say they give us work at your house? I just want to laugh. If we hadn't made you rich with our raw materials and our money in your public treasury, what job would there be for you? Damn, zero! We are poor because you have decided it and you will never be able to extricate us, since it is either you who leave us in peace in the management of our resources and our countries, or you are going to submit to us. Clear or not?

    1. Yes the whites have always plundered from Africa dear friend, for your guidance. France has nothing, it robs “the so-called poor countries. " Thanks

  2. Instead of focusing on Europe, look at the Chinese, Indians and Lebanese who are invading your country, taking trade, ports, industries. They are lending money to your governments on terms you could never repay. counterpart, they will plunder your country in all equality.Your awakening will be very painful.Europe gives you a headache, there you would have a pain in the C….

  3. To the whites… Why always talk about colours. Me it's the idiots that I don't like.

  4. You Africans are the racists. Always calling Europeans white. You always put skin color first. It is your leaders who sell your wealth. They are the ones who generate corruption. So keep doing what you know how to do best. Drink in your maquis.

    1. I am African but completely agree with you… Let them continue to party to accuse the Europeans afterwards!

      1. You are all ignorant about what is really going on in this world. But soon, everyone will wake up; and the whites and the blacks and the yellows and the reds etc…
        You are all amazing!! but let me tell you that we are all in the same boat (the earth!) and the boat is sinking because some for centuries have become more and more voracious in robbing others, and turning them into slaves under the cover of pseudo independence of so-called debt.
        The sad reality is that we are all connected. If some die, the others will also die. the galloping deforestation of the Amazon and the Congo Basin will deprive us of trees which until now have always given us oxygen and this to the whole planet. Who owns all these multinationals (Bankers) who have plunged entire families into distress and poverty? Seriously, who is responsible for all this mess? Who makes the weapons and the winds? thus creating massive displacements of populations towards often uncertain destinations. who legalizes homosexuality all over the world and boasts of being wise and superior? when others have known for centuries that a man who sleeps with a man is AN Abomination before the creator. The riches belong to God, and he has placed them in the basements of the different countries of the world so that all (whites and blacks alike) can enjoy them. But what do we see every day on television, on the news? we see the consequences of the greed of some. I'm going to stop by saying this to you all. GLOBAL WARMING WILL NOT CHOOSE TO KILL WHITES OR BLACKS YOU KNOW! HE WILL KILL MEN.

    2. Yes drinking and smoking is what you wanted them to do. So you rob them quietly busy drinking and smoking.
      How much does a pack of DUNHILL cigarettes cost in France? How much does it cost in Africa?

    3. Totally agree. stop always accusing white people for everything that happens. stop always talking about the color of people to defend yourself. I am black and I have known racism in Africa, something that I have never suffered in Europe even in countries where racism is flagrant. It's easy to blame everything on the whites. Wake up and take charge of your future by watching what is happening

  5. In reality, if the judges did not submit the decisions in writing, it was to give Benssouda and co time to put together another file which this time may bring together sufficient elements for the conviction of Gbagbo and Blé Goudé. Because the prosecutor only has 30 days after the filing of the judges' writings and there is no fixed deadline for the filing of the judges' writings. All the time the judges have spent is to allow Bensouda and the various laboratories of evil to do their dirty work. You understand why President Gbagbo, as an informed man, does not express himself and does not expose himself publicly. This prosecutor awaits him on small facts; because in law for there to be an appeal, new elements are needed; and it is these new elements that President Gbagbo does not give them the opportunity to have.

  6. We are always here wondering who benefits from the crime.
    An absurdity, for centuries. High finance supported by Zionist and Jewish lobbyism has not finished bringing us closer to nothingness.
    Africa will only come out of it when all the regimes in place, dominated by foreign powers, since independence have not found their independence. Countries are showing the example and the movement, although slow, is taking place.
    The ICC, the UN, the IMF and the World Bank are institutions in decline and a revival will loom on the horizon, but at what cost?
    Too much time, wasted energy due to incompetent leaders.
    The decline of Europe and the United States is there, but everything is done to slow it down and we are the turkeys of the farce. This provisional release against Laurent Gbagbo is a farce and demonstrates the bad faith of the ICC and Fatou Bensouda

    Hopefully from here some or most of you will understand what is at play here.
