The Mauritanian Court of Appeals in Nouakchott rejected a request on Monday for the conditional release of former President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz. The court cited a possible violation of the conditions of strict judicial oversight.

The Mauritanian Public Prosecution had requested the investigating judge to place the former president in pre-trial detention because “he had failed to sign-in twice with the police.”
