Mauritanian authorities released former President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz


Mauritanian authorities released former President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz on Monday, a week after he was arrested on corruption-related charges.

Ould Abdel Aziz “was released and he is not at his home,” one of the former president’s defense lawyers was quoted as saying.

Al-Akbar news portal, citing an official source, said the former president has been placed under surveillance by the Economic Crimes Police, his passport withdrawn and prevented from leaving the capital, Nouakchott.

Ould Abdel Aziz, 63, was held last week on charges of corruption put forward by a parliamentary committee that has scrutinized his time in power.
