Charles Blé Goudé enlisted in the Netherlands to obtain his ordinary passport

The former leader of the patriotic galaxy, Charles Blé Goudé was received by the consul of the Embassy of the Ivory Coast in The Hague, this Friday, July 16, 2021. The purpose of this meeting was to proceed to the enrollment of the former resident of the International Criminal Court (ICC), for the issuance of his ordinary passport, according to a press release from his lawyer, Maître N'dry Claver Kouadio, of which Nouvelles Du Continent received a copy.


"Mr. Blé Goudé wishes to salute the welcome imbued with courtesy and Ivorian friendliness shown by the consular authorities and the staff of the embassy," read the note.

According to his lawyer, Maître N'dry Claver Kouadio, his client, Charles Blé Goudé, fully appreciates the desire for relaxation that drives the Head of State, His Excellency Alassane Ouattara.

"He expresses his gratitude to him for having facilitated this first step which opens the door to his forthcoming return to Côte d'Ivoire in order to participate physically in the ongoing peace and reconciliation process," he listed in the statement.


It should be remembered, Charles Blé Goudé, since his double acquittal by the International Criminal Court (ICC), at first instance on January 15, 2019 and then on appeal on March 31 alongside his "mentor" Laurent Gbagbo, shows the ardent desire to return to his native land, he said, "playing his part in the process of reconciliation of the sons of the Ivory Coast".
