The National Prosecuting Authority has been asked by the Association of the Martyrs of Antananarivo Merrina Square and the citizens of the State of Madagascar to investigate the exiled ex-president, Marc Ravalomanana, for allegedly ordering the shooting of protestors on February 7, 2009. The group claims the act was a crime against humanity as defined in the International Criminal Court (ICC) and that South African authorities should prosecute Ravalomanana. The victims and their families claim that in total 71 people were killed and 698 injured. Many of these citizens will be presenting the NPA with sworn affidavits encouraging for justice to be done.
