He accused the “corrupt regime” of “targeting him and mistreating him”. The government is yet to respond to his claims. 

Ould Abdelaziz alongside senior government officials who worked under him between 2008 to 2019 are being investigated over allegations of graft and misappropriation.

He says he is the victim of political witch-hunting and says he should enjoy protection under the country’s constitution.
