Former Ivory Coast President Laurent Gbagbo intends to return to his homeland after his release by the International Criminal Court, his daughter told Reuters on Wednesday.

She declined to comment on his possible political ambitions.

“My father will not live in any other country than Ivory Coast. He would go back and we expect him to go back,” Marie Laurence Gbagbo said in an interview.

Gbagbo was acquitted of all charges at the war crimes court on Tuesday but judges have yet to rule on whether to attach any conditions to his release. Prosecutors have asked he not be allowed to travel to Ivory Coast due to fears he would not return to The Hague for appeals.
