African Union imposes sanctions on Madagascar


The African Union imposed sanctions on Madagascar’s leadership on Wednesday for its failure to comply with power-sharing deals struck since President Andry Rajoelina seized power a year ago.

“The sanctions consist of a refusal to grant visas, the freezing of assets, including their financial assets in foreign banks, and diplomatic isolation,” said Ramtane Lamamra, the AU Commissioner for Peace and Security.

“We wil be requesting all interational organisations to refuse the accreditation of representatives of the regime in place,” he told News Agency reporters.
