Imagine you are the leader of a regional power, basking in the glow of global attention to your political and economic success. You have managed to consolidate your power by outmaneuvering your opponents, most critically the military with its habit of pushing out governments not of its liking. You are celebrated the world over as a flawed, but transformative and visionary leader of an emerging democracy.

The new indictment is based on additional (digital) documents, said to reinforce the original charges, which prosecutors have “found” in a naval base and at the home of a retired colonel.
