ICC rejects Gbagbo’s appeal for release


The Hague – Appeals judges at the International Criminal Court on Tuesday rejected a request for the temporary release of former Ivory Coast President Laurent Gbagbo on health grounds.

Gbagbo, 70, is accused of plunging his country into civil war rather than relinquishing his grip on power after losing a presidential run-off vote in 2010.

His trial has been scheduled to start in November. (Reuters/NAN)
