Former President Mark Ravalomanana Accused of Illegal Importation of Weapons

Wikileaks Ravalomanana

A “wikileaks” scandal has arisen when a classified document was revealed indicting Ravalomanana. The cable discovered dates back to March 4, 2009 and suggests that Marc Ravalomanana, president of Madagascar at that time, illegally imported weapons using South Africa as a transit point. The riot gear is guessed to have been wanted for internal repression since this was right before Ravalomanana was ousted and it is likely to have been exported to military forces.
