An Osu Magistrate's Court has granted reliefs being sough by Ivorian fugitive, Justin Katinan Kone, who was fighting extradition to Ivory Coast to stand trial for murder and financial crimes.

Mr. Katinan argued before Magistrate Aboagye Tanor that charges he was facing back home were politically motivated and that he should be extradited.

The court agreed with the former Spokesperson to ousted leader, Laurent Gbagbo in its verdict, Friday after months of legal wranglings.
