Ivory Coast First Lady Sentenced To 20 Years Behind Bars For Post Election Violence

Former Ivorian First Lady Mrs Simone Gbagbo has been sentenced to 20 years imprisonment by an Ivorian court for organizing post election violence after her husband, Laurent Gbagbo lost out in the 2010 Presidential elections in Ivory Coast.


In a unanimous judgement today March 10th, the court said Mrs Gbagbo together with her husband’s supporters, after rejecting the results from the elections that saw her husband’s main rival, Alassane Ouattara declared winner of the election, carried out activities that undermined the state security which left over 3000 people dead.
