South African Legal Advisor of the former president, Marc Ravalomanana, deposed and exiled since 2009 in South Africa, is in Madagascar since Tuesday.
 
Brian Currin, the human rights lawyer, and who is not at his first trip in the island, should meet the president Hery Rajaonarimampianina to prepare the ground for a possible return of Marc Ravalomanana in Madagascar, as reported by the Midi Madagasikara newspaper.
 
Last March, the Attorney general of the Court of appeal, had recalled that Marc Ravalomanana should nevertheless be arrested once he will be back in Madagascar.
 
As a reminder, recognised guilty of murder and complicity in murders on August 28, 2010, by the Court of Tananarive, Marc Ravalomanana was sentenced in absentia to life imprisonment for the death of some 30 demonstrators, on February 7, 2009, outside the Presidential Palace.
 
The pro-Rajoelina demonstrators were coldly shot by the presidential guard of former Malagasy president, Marc Ravalomanana, according to Malagasy justice who also sentenced two officers in that case.
