Madagascar: The President Hery Rajaonarimampianina acquitted five political prisoners

The Malagasy President Hery Rajaonarimampianina, signed an acquitted form on Wednesday in the context of national reconciliation by releasing five close supporters of the former President Marc Ravalomanana and has cleared these political prisoners who had conspired against former President of the Transition, Andry Rajoelina.
These releases of the General Jean Heriniaina Raoelina, military adviser to the former President Marc Ravalomanana, Colonel Raymond Andrianjafy, Lieutenant Colonel Charles Andrianasoavina of Rabevolombava Saorany and Pastor Andrianantenaina Razakasoa do not suppress so far the legal proceedings against the main stakeholders.
 Four of them were sentenced for their particular role in the fatal shooting of 7 February 2009 when thirty pro-Rajoelina demonstrators were killed outside the presidential palace of Ambohitsorohitra by the guard of former President Marc Ravalomanana.
The latter was also able to leave on Wednesday his arrest of the Admiralty in Diego Suarez in the North Madagascar to join his family at his residence in Faravohitra.
