This request from the Minister of Justice comes as Ibrahima Kassory Fofana, former Prime Minister of Guinea, has already been in prison for similar acts since April 6.

The case concerning the National Agency for Economic and Social Inclusion (ANIES) has already been examined by the investigating judge. The alleged facts have already been debated and (Ibrahima Kassory Fofana) amply explained about it.
