Broadcasted 21 March 2003 on Fréquence Paris Plurielle (F.P.P.) FM 106.3
(90 min french/malagasy)
Speaker: Claudia Solofolandy, Fano engineering.

Three interviews made by Claudia : two in Madagascar and the last one, in France.
1/ Talks with some representatives of those who fought against the Ratsiraka's militia in Brickaville and neighbours during the last troubles. Some have been imprisoned and saw their properties set alight by this militia. They are trying now to start up an association claiming more recognition from the new power in Madagascar. Brickaville was the area where Ratsiraka's supporters were settled the best, and where the biggest road-block has been set up.

2/ Interview of some people who attended the trial of lieutenant-colonel COUTITI Assolant, the most virulent supporter of Ratsiraka. He killed a lot of persons in the north of Madagascar during the crisis. They gave their thoughts and feelings about the sentence: COUTITI has been condemned to 10 years imprisonment and 5 millions malagasy francs (about 800) damages.

3/ Claudia met two officials of the C.S.P.M.D., Mr Philippe Randrianarimanana and Ms Sophie Faullimel. The C.S.P.M.D. Comité de Soutien au Peuple Malgache en Danger) has been set up in France at the beginning of the crisis, early 2002. It aims to extradite Ratsiraka from France to Madagascar.
