A court in Ghana on Friday rejected a request from Ivory Coast to extradite a top ally of former president Laurent Gbagbo, saying the charges against Justin Kone Katinan had \"political motivation.\" \"I will proceed to dismiss the application for the extradition,\" said magistrates court Judge Aboagye Tanor, ending a year-long legal battle. Katinan is wanted in his home country for economic crimes allegedly committed during Ivory Coast\'s 2011 post-election crisis.
