Comoros: international judicial experts to revive the investigation of the assassination of Lieutenant-Colonel Ayouba Combo
Last November, the Assizes Court of Moroni has judged three soldiers and the former Chief of Military Staff, Saed Mohamed Amiri.

 Accused of involvement of the murder on June 13, 2010 at the residence of Lieutenant-Colonel Ayouba Combo, the defendants were all acquitted for lack of evidence.

For the family of the murdered former Colonel, the Comorian justice has tainted bias and according to her, all the rules of procedure have been violated.

The Government of the Comoros also decided to open a new investigation to identify the perpetrators of this crime and not to let the death of this high-ranking officer of the army, unpunished. The experts of the United Nations and the African Union are expected by next February in the archipelago to help local investigators to shed light on the assassination of Lieutenant-Colonel Ayouba Combo.

The former Colonel was the right arm of the Franco-Comorian mercenary Bob Denard and played an active role in the many coups d ' état that rocked the Comoros since its independence in 1975.
