Ahmad Al Faqi Al Mahdi: “I plead guilty”

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 - 06:44

By Anissa Barrak

Ahmad Al Faqi Al Mahdi was convicted of the war crime of having deliberately directed the attacks that, in June and July 2012, led to the destruction of ten religious and historical monuments in Timbuktu (Mali), a World Heritage site since 1988. This is the first time that the International Criminal Court (ICC) has been requested – in this case, by the State of Mali – to pass judgement on the destruction of cultural monuments, and the first time that it has categorized such acts as war crimes. On 27 September 2016, the ICC sentenced Al...

In (limited) defence of the ICC in the Al Mahdi case

Ahmad al Faqi al Mahdi
Thursday, October 13, 2016 - 12:07

A healthy debate on the work of the International Criminal Court (ICC) is both necessary and important. However, we felt that the recent blog post, ‘The Al Mahdi Case: Stretching the Principles of the ICC to the Breaking Point?’ was off balance and needs to be addressed.

The Al Mahdi case: Stretching the principles of the ICC to a breaking point?

Al Mahdi makes his first appearance at the ICC
Monday, August 29, 2016 - 10:00

The Ahmad Al Faqi Al Mahdi case appears to have become known for all the wrong reasons: it is the first guilty plea before the ICC and it presumably will become the shortest trial in the history of the Court. Yet, at a time when criticism of the ICC is rife, the more fundamental question is whether this case is consistent with the principles that are so crucial to the viable future of the ICC.

Mali jihadist first at ICC

Ahmad Al Faqi Al Mahdi
Monday, August 22, 2016 - 17:53

It’s not every day that the ICC sees such a collection of ‘firsts’ in one day: to have someone plead guilty; to have a plea agreement between defence and prosecution; to have the war crime of cultural destruction prosecuted; to have a jihadist on trial; to have a defendant express his “deep regret and pain” about what happened; to have a total trial process of just one week. Altogether, it’s not what observers of The Hague’s long-drawn-out processes are used to.
