The debate on accountability in The New Gambia

gambia-s-new-president-adama-barrow-holds-the-koran-during-the-inauguration
Tuesday, February 21, 2017 - 11:28

At the weekend Gambia partied. It’s been a time for celebration as the new president Adama Barrow formally took power and everyone – or at least many many thousands - came to the inauguration. But at the same time, there are new discoveries every day about what happened under the 22 year regime of former president Yayha Jammeh. Is this going to be a process like that of Hissene Habre – a many decades long wait and then an African solution?

How can we move on without knowing the truth? That's why we should support the new president to form a truth and reconciliation commission to come up with recomdations from it's findings. forgiveness, should be up to the victims families, but not the government. What the new government can do, is to compensate these familes for the crimes committed against their relatives.

If we mean truth and reconciliation, Jammeh cannot be left out. He is the main man behind the show therefore if he is left behind, who will give the truth? This is jammehs tune let him dance to it.

Article 15 (mis)communication

An anti-xenophobia activist stands chained in front of a banner, as thousands of people get ready to march against the recent wave of xenophobic attacks in South Africa through the streets of Johannesburg.
Monday, May 4, 2015 - 13:08

Last week, social media was buzzing with reports that the International Criminal Court might launch a probe into South Africa's Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini. The whole thing kicked off when a Nigerian group passed on documents to the ICC, claiming Zwelithini used hate speech to encourage his people to commit crimes against humanity.

Great job Justice Hub. This case represents an important precedent. I like this chronological and historical analysis of the legal concept of 'command responsibility' which is finally laurelled in article 28 of the Rome Statute. Thumbs up!

A day at the ECCC - The boy who saw everything

Tuesday, January 27, 2015 - 10:34

The Khmer Rouge trials in Cambodia started up again recently after the defence lifted their boycott of the proceedings. Two former Khmer Rouge leaders, Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan, are accused of the mass murder of ethnic Vietnamese and Muslims in the 1970s. Kaj Jalving attended a hearing last week and wrote down his impressions of the day.

@Francis We'll cover the final statements today and tomorrow (Nov 12 and 13) and will keep you informed, also via Twitter @justicehub The defense will probably repeat the arguments you just made about Patasse. After tomorrow it's up to the judges to decide on Bemba's faith. S

Bemba's troops were invited by former President Patassé to help him when facing Bozize's rebellion against his power. ICC's Prosecutor pursues Bemba, a citizen of the Democratic Republic of Congo who provided troops to Patassé( the CAR President in that time) as co-author of alleged crimes. Where the other co-authors? Why does not the prosecutor pursue Patassé or one of his military commanders? Because, It is reasonable to think that as Congolese troops, Bemba's soldiers where led in CAR by CAR's government officers. I am trying to figure out what happen at ICC in this case, but my mind is blocked. Could anybody help to find out what happen?

ISIS human rights violations worse than Assad's?

State Department wants to stop funding human rights investigations in Syria and use the money to investigate ISIS crimes in Iraq
Thursday, November 6, 2014 - 14:14

A justice mechanism to deal with the Syrian conflict has seemed low on the world’s agenda. This week brought news of US government funding cuts for a widely commended NGO gathering Syrian war crimes evidence.

Well I think that writer is wrong on Syria and the article was not substantive. More Assad bashing and more distractions from the Palestinian horrors.

Alice Prater, good question. Would really like to hear an answer.

Has the CIJA done any work on documenting Israel's war crimes and occupation of Palestinians? I would especially like to here about the daylight attach on the Gaza strip. It is hard to get factual information on this. That aside, interesting article.
