Mauritania: former leader Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz soon to face justice

Accused of illicit enrichment, receiving stolen goods, and money laundering during the ten years he was in power, former Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz was imprisoned in late June 2021, French media RFI reported.

The former president was placed under house arrest in January due to health issues.

The deadline for the judicial review expires on Wednesday, but a trial date for the former President has still not been announced.

His lawyers appealed because they believe they did not have access to the file before its closure. And since then, radio silence.

Before setting a hearing date, it should be noted that the Court of Appeal must first rule on the appeals filed. The case could eventually be taken to the Criminal Division of the Supreme Court.
