“Though the Ivory Coast government’s conduct during this period was well documented, one detail hasn’t come to light until now: the role of an American political player who was working behind the scenes to assist the embattled West African government.
On December 21, 2010 — just days after Gbagbo refused to step down and executed a brutal crackdown on the opposition — Omri Ceren registered with the Justice Department’s Foreign Agents Registration Unit in order to work on behalf of the Gbagbo regime regarding the Ivory Coast conflict.
Ceren, at the time a registered lobbyist and VP of the strategic communications firm Davis-Block LLC, today serves as national security adviser to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Ceren was hired for the job in late April, according to a press release issued by Cruz’s office.
According to the 2010 Justice Department documents signed by Ceren, he was to “render services” to the “Government of Cote d’lvoire” in relation to ‘the current conflict over the November 28, 2010 elections.'”
