Military leaders in Guinea say they will prosecute former President Alpha Condé for murder and other crimes committed during his time in office.
A document from Guinea’s public prosecutor says Mr Condé is among 27 former senior officials who are facing a long list of alleged crimes.
He faces several accusations including murder, illegal detentions, abductions, torture, rape and kidnapping.
The former president, 84, was ousted last September by soldiers led by Colonel Mamady Doumbouya.
The public prosecutor said the case was launched following a complaint filed by FNDC, an umbrella group that spearheaded the protests.
