Madagascar: Marc Ravalomanana prohibited to discuss with representatives of his political movement

While Marc Ravalomanana was able to leave his house arrest of the Admiralty in Diego Suarez in northern Madagascar to reach on the 24 December last his residence of Faravohitra in the capital Tananarive, the former Malagasy president is still not authorised to receive representatives of his political movement.
For the time being, only family outings supervised and secured by the security forces are permitted him.
Restrictions according to the political observers who could weigh heavily in the balance and can lead to clash during the second meeting at the summit scheduled on 13 January between the last five Malagasy presidents (Hery Rajaonarimampianina, Andry Rajoelina, Marc Ravalomanana, Didier Ratsiraka and Albert Zafy) and where national reconciliation is again the key subject of discussion.
As a reminder, Marc Ravalomanana was under house arrest since mid-November 2014 on the side of the Admiralty in Diego Suarez after his return without consultation in the Island.
