Grilling of ministers under former Burkinabe President Blaise Compaore officially began on Tuesday in Burkina Faso’s capital, Ouagadougou.
Media sources indicate that eleven of the former government officials have already responded to the summons made by police at the Paspanga police base near the centre of the capital.
At the same time, three others were expected in yet another police station in Kadiogo, located in the central part of the country.
In total, thirty-two ministers from the previous government including the former Prime Minister are expected to be heard for their alleged involvement in the 2014 short-lived coup.
They face charges of murder, causing destruction and injury and for assassination attempts. The thirty-two were also accused of wanting to change the country’s constitution in 2014, that would allow Blaise Compaore extend his mandate.
