The report on the investigation into crimes committed after the re-election of Alassane Ouattara in October 2020 was made public on Monday 27 December. It holds many accountable, including the leader of the Parti Démocratique de Côte d'Ivoire (PDCI). 

Houses in flames, young people missing or murdered, charred corpses, burning barricades, clashes between armed gangs. One year on from the post election-violence that began in late 2020 in Côte d’Ivoire, the unit in charge of the investigation into these events has just delivered its explosive conclusions.
