FRANCE SENDS CONFEDERATION OF AFRICAN FOOTBALL CHIEF TO INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT

France has extradited Patrice-Edouard Ngaissona, a member of Africa’s top footballing body to the International Criminal Court in The Hague where he faces war crimes charges.

Ngaissona, who sits on the board of the Confederation of African Football, is charged with coordinating so-called anti-Balaka militia which emerged after civil war broke out in the Central African Republic in 2013.

The former CAR sports minister was arrested in France on December 12 on an ICC warrant, and a court in Paris ruled on December 31 that he could be transferred to the tribunal in the Netherlands.

Ngaissona has denied the charges.
