Ivory Coast refuses to transfer former first lady Simone Gbagbo to ICC

Ivory Coast says it will not transfer former first lady Simone Gbagbo to the International Criminal Court and plans to try her in a domestic court instead. Her husband, former president Laurent Gbagbo, is in the custody of the Hague-based court awaiting trial for crimes against humanity following post election violence in 2010. Government officials said they plan to file a motion to dismiss an arrest warrant against her.
