Belgium will take in former Ivory Coast President Laurent Gbagbo following a request from the International Criminal Court which freed him from detention earlier, Belgian News Agency Belga said on Saturday.
The International Criminal Court contacted Belgium because of Gbagboâ€™s family ties in the country, Belga quoted a Belgian foreign ministry spokesman Karl Lagatie.
Gbagbo, who ruled Ivory Coast from 2000 to 2011, has spent seven years in custody in The Hague.
