After ten years in exile, former president of Côte d’Ivoire Laurent Gbagbo will finally return to his home country.

General secretary of Gbagbo’s Ivorian Popular Front Political Party, Assoua Adou announced on Monday at a press conference that “upon his flight’s arrival, he will go through the airport’s VIP facilities to then be received at the presidential pavilion”

Gbagbo has been acquitted of crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Court charges he faced in electoral violence in 2010 when he refused to concede defeat to then-victor and current President Alassane Ouattara.

The head of state Ouattara extended the presidential courtesy to his old rival Gbagbo as a peaceful gesture to avoid renewed conflict.
