Ivorian authorities investigating alleged crimes by former president

International Commission of Inquiry investigates alleged abuses in Côte d'Ivoire

The judicial authorities in Côte d'Ivoire are investigating allegations that the former president of the West African country was involved in the deaths of civilians in the months that followed disputed elections.

Laurent Gbagbo refused to step down after he was defeated in elections by Alassane Ouattara, in November last year.

The United Nations special envoy for Côte d'Ivoire, YJ Choi, says that evidence is being gathered to support the investigation.

Jean-Pierre Ramazani asked Mr Choi what role the UN is playing.
