Madagascar Marc Ravalomanana still under the threat of his sentence of hard labor in perpetuity, once returned to the island

The former President of Madagascar, deposed in 2009, Marc Ravalomanana, who lives in exile in South Africa since his overthrow by Andry Rajoelina, may see his possible return to Madagascar stopping by his judicial troubles in the island.
The Attorney general to the Court of appeal, Jacques Randrianasolo, is thus relentless and categorical regarding the effective implementation of the condemnation of 2010 of Marc Ravalomanana.
According to the Attorney general to the Court of appeal, Marc Ravalomanana should be arrested once he will be back in Madagascar, as reported by the site.
"Malagasy justice sentenced him, and the sentence should be executed," said the Attorney general to the Court of appeal, Jacques Randrianasolo.
As a reminder, convicted of murder and conspiracy to murder on August 28, 2010 by the Court of Tananarive, Marc Ravalomanana was sentenced in absentia to hard labor for life for the death of thirty protesters, February 7, 2009, before the presidential palace.
The pro-Rajoelina demonstrators were coldly shot with bullets of the presidential guard of former Malagasy president, Marc Ravalomanana, according to Malagasy justice who also sentenced two officers in that case.
