Chad Will Pardon French Alleged Kidnappers

Ok seriously when will Europeans stop kidnapping Africans its 2008 and still taking place. Shame on them.

"Chadian President of Chad Idriss Deby is prepared to pardon the French charity workers (from the group Zoe's Ark) convicted of trying to kidnap 103 Chadian children and fly them to Europe, reports the BBC. The six charity workers were sentenced to eight years of hard labor in Chad, but were to serve comparable sentences in France. But after France's assistance during the country's recent rebel attacks in the Chadian capital of N'Djamena, Deby recently thanked the French government during a visit to the country and announced on a French radio show that he would pardon the workers, if the French government asked him to, reports the BBC. The French government is reportedly preparing a formal request. There are more than 1,400 French troops currently in Chad. The Zoe's Ark workers have always maintained their innocence, saying that they believed the children they were trying to fly to France were orphans from Darfur. But, in fact, they were from Chad, and a lot of them had at least one living parent, reports the news service."
