Mauritania: Ex-president's lawyers decry lack of access to client

Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz

The lawyers of the former Mauritanian president complain that they no longer have access to their client.

Since 22 June, Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz has been detained in a villa at the police academy in the nation’s capital, Nouakchott. He is being prosecuted for alleged financial misappropriation.

His lawyers say they have been prevented from visiting him, a decision they violates the law.

Taleb Khayar is one of the lawyers of the former Mauritanian president.
