Niamey residents welcome plans to prosecute former president | AfricaNews |

The ruling junta in Niamey says it has gathered the necessary evidence to prosecute Niger's deposed president, Mohamed Bazoum, for "high treason". Nigeriens trust the army, but rights activists fear corruption in the judiciary?

Col. Major Amadou Abdramane, member of Niger's ruling CNSP said Bazoum was being charged following his post-coup exchanges with high-ranking West African politicians and "their international mentors," whom the leaders of the revolt accuse of making false allegations and attempting to derail a peaceful transition in order to justify a military intervention.
