“We worked secretly. Our investigations enabled us to identify those involved, whether as sponsors or accomplices,” said Simplice Poda, the commission’s president who added that “the said persons are still benefiting from the presumption of innocence.”
Poda made the remarks in the capital Ouagadougou after having handed over his commission’s report to Prime Minister Yacouba Issac Zida.
The coup that was led by Gen. Gilbert Diendere, a confidant of ex-President Blaise Compaore, left 15 people dead and over 250 others injured.
According to Poda, the commission, comprised of eight people, most of them security officers, questioned many senior military officials.
“We cannot say we questioned everybody,” he affirmed, adding that “some people had fled the country.” Enditem
