Ivory Coast union leader Basile Mahan Gahé leaves jail but charges still weigh
Basile Mahan Gahé, general secretary of the Ivory Coast national trade union center Dignité, was freed from prison on December 22, following his abduction, torture and 18 months of detention. His release however is conditional.
The IUF warmly thanks all who pressed for his release. We will continue to demand that all charges against him be dropped and that he be allowed full freedom to resume his trade union activities.
