THE HAGUE Air Force One Mid 07 Noir Soldes , Oct. 1 (Xinhua) -- The pre-trial chamber of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague on Tuesday unsealed an arrest warrant against Ivorian politician Charles Ble Goude for alleged crimes against humanity.
Ble Goude, 41, is charged with individual criminal responsibility, as indirect co-perpetrator Homme Air Force One Haute Grise Orange Soldes , for four counts of crimes against humanity, namely murder, rape and other forms of sexual violence, persecution Air Force One Flyknit Basse Blanche Soldes , and other inhuman acts, allegedly committed in Cote d'Ivoire between Dec. 16, 2010 and April 12, 2011.
The arrest warrant for Ble Goude is the third one issued in the situation in Cote d'Ivoire Air Force One Flyknit Basse Noir Soldes , after warrants issued against Laurent Gbagbo on Nov. 23, 2011 and against Simone Gbagbo on Feb. 29, 2012.
The 68-year-old Laurent Gbagbo was president of Cote d'Ivoire from 2000 until his arrest in April 2011. He was charged with crimes against humanity, allegedly committed on his behalf in post-electoral violence in his country. Gbagbo was transferred to the ICC's detention unit in The Hague on Nov. 30 Homme Air Force One Flyknit Basse Grise Soldes , 2011.
Ble Goude supported the ideas and policies of Gbagbo and was nominated as Minister for Sports and Youth in 2010. He was arrested by the Ghanaian Police in January 2013 and flown to Abidjan, where he remained in custody.
Pre-trial Judges of the ICC found that there are reasonable grounds to believe that in the aftermath of the presidential elections, pro-Gbagbo forces attacked the civilian population in Abidjan and in the west of the country, targeting civilians who they believed were supporters of the opposing candidate Alassane Ouattara.
The chamber also found reason to believe that a plan existed between Gbagbo and his inner circle to commit the crimes.
"Ble Goude Air Force One SF Desert Ochre Boots Soldes , as a member of Gbagbo's inner circle, allegedly exercised joint control over the crimes, and made a coordinated and essential contribution to the realization of the plan," the ICC stated.
"He allegedly had the power to control and give instructions directly to the youth who were systematically recruited Homme Air Force One Basse 07 LE Bordeaux Soldes , armed, trained and integrated into the chain of command of the Ivorian Defense and Security Forces, which were reinforced by youth militias and mercenaries loyal to Gbagbo."
Ble Goude has always denied playing any role in the violence that left at least 3,000 dead.
The question now is Femme Air Force One Haute Bordeaux Soldes , if or when he will be handed over to the ICC. Cote d'Ivoire has accepted the jurisdiction of the ICC and also ratified the Rome Statute, but Simone Gbagbo has so far not been transferred to The Hague.
LUSAKA， March 7 (Xinhua) -- The death of eight people who tried to queue up to receive food aid at a sport complex in Lusaka， the Zambian capital， has raised questions on the country's food security situation， the country's leading opposition leader said on Tuesday.
"These deaths were avoidable in the sense that our people died as they were looking for food， which has become a luxury under the current government，" Hakainde Hichilema， leader of the main opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) said.
At least eight people were killed on Monday in a stampede at the Olympic Youth Development Center (OYDC) as thousands of people invaded the sports complex to receive free food hampers which were being donated by a church.
The food parcels included a head of cabbage， sugar， soya pieces， cooking oil and a 10 kilogram bag of mealie-meal.
The church had prepared food hampers for about 35，000 people， mostly from the slums of the city but more people turned up to receive the free food.
According to eyewitnesses， the stampede was caused by impatient residents who did not have coupons but wanted to gain entry into the sports complex.
The government has since expressed sadness over the loss of lives and suspended the operations of the church following the incident， claiming it did not follow laid-down laws for organizing public gatherings.
But for opposition leaders and civil society groupings， the incident is a sign of the level of hunger in the country which boasts of producing plenty of maize， some of which is being exported to neighboring countries facing a maize shortage.
Critics have questioned why the price of the staple food， mealie meal， could be beyond the reach of many people， mostly from the country's impoverished densely populated slums when the country has plenty of maize.
According to the opposition leader， the scramble for food at the event is a sign of the hunger situation in the country as the price of the staple food has become too expensive for many to afford， a situation he calls unacceptable and shameful.
"How can a country so rich as ours be failing to feed its own people and yet some people are globetrotting pretending that there is no hunger among ourselves，" he wondered.
His views have been supported by MacDonald Chipenzi， a governance expert， who said the stampede over food was enough evidence for those in authority to consider the hunger situation among the impoverished people in society.
"What happened at the OYDC has correctly brought to our attention the acute hunger situation people are facing in communities especially in urban areas，" he told Xinhua.
According to him， it is pointless for the government to be talking about bumper harvest of maize and improving economy when the majority of the people were not benefiting.
He said the bumper harvest of maize and improved economic growth being touted by the government is a contrast to what was happening on the ground as people are not able to afford the price of mealie meal.
"The unfortunate incident was due to our church， political leadership and some on-state actors who are denying the extent of hunger and destitution in our country and communities，" he added.
Zambia has had good harvests of maize in recent years， a situation that makes the country among the few that are food .
