(AhlulBayt News Agency) – Comoros has put former President Ahmed Abdallah Mohamed Sambi under house arrest just days after he was questioned over his alleged role in a scheme to sell citizenship that investigators say was riddled with corrupt practice.

The interior ministry claimed on Saturday it had decided to put Sambi under house arrest after he tried to incite his supporters following his questioning by investigators at his home on Tuesday.

Sambi, another ex-president Ikililou Dhoinine, who succeeded him, and 10 other senior officials from their administrations have been banned from traveling.
