The leader of the Malian junta, Assimi Goïta, granted his pardon with total remission of sentences to the 49 Ivorian soldiers imprisoned since July 2022 in Bamako.
The Malian government issued a statement on Friday evening.
It is a success for Togo.
President Faure Gnassingbé engaged 6 months ago in an intense diplomatic action to free these soldiers.
'I welcome the presidential pardon granted by (…) Colonel Assimi Goïta (…)', tweeted the Togolese president on Saturday.
