Ivory Coast: ICC Chief in Abidjan to talk about abuses
The chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court Luis Moreno-Ocampo is in the Ivory Coast to investigate the country's post-election violence.
Reports say Mr Moreno-Ocampo will meet victims, as well as government and opposition representatives during his visit.
United Nations estimates that about 3,000 were killed and 5,000 displaced in months of unrest, after last November’s disputed presidential election.
Forces loyal to both President Alassane Ouattara, and his rival, former President Laurent Gbagbo have been accused of abuses.
But his regime has come in for strong criticisms for applying partial justice by only trying to prosecute Gbagbo and his supporters, not reigning in the former rebels and others who support him.
There are also others who think the investigation and prosecution of atrocities and abuses should not be limited to the post election violence but must date back to the start of the 2002 civil war in the Ivory Coast.
Mr Ouattara took power last May, after Gbagbo was captured by pro-Ouattara rebel forces backed by French troops
It preceded some five-month stand-off with Mr Gbagbo, who had refused to accept defeat.Tweet
