Ghana grants bail to spokesman of ex-I. Coast leader

A court in Ghana on Tuesday granted bail to the spokesman of former Ivory Coast president Laurent Gbagbo, Justin Kone Katinan, as prosecutors were not ready to start extradition proceedings against him.

"There is the greatest potential that the proceeding is likely to delay and therefore I will grant the accused bail," said magistrates court judge Aboagye Tandoh, adding that Katinan, who is wanted in his home country for economic crimes, must report to the authorities every two weeks.
