The CVCI (Collectif des Victimes de la Côte d'Ivoire) civil society group called for a protest to take place in front of the National Commission of Human Rights (CNDHCI) building in Abidjan on Monday, January 14, to denounce the potential provisional release of former president Laurent Gbagbo. A heightened security presence, along with associated traffic disruptions, are likely in the vicinity of the demonstration.


The demonstration comes as the International Criminal Court (ICC) is expected to announce a verdict over the provisional release of Gbagbo on January 15. Gbagbo, in detention since November 2011, faces four counts of crimes against humanity, related to the violence following his defeat in the 2010 presidential election.


Individuals in Abidjan are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and refrain from discussing domestic political issues in public.
