Kenya’s Supreme Court recently stunned the world by nullifying the re-election of Uhuru Kenyatta for a second term as president. Kenya’s top court found that the August 8th presidential election had failed to meet the standards set in the country’s constitution. Now there is a campaign to discredit the Supreme Court that is being led by the same forces that helped destroy the Kenyan cases at the ICC.

How the trial of Dominic Ongwen has shaped attitudes toward International Criminal Justice in Uganda

Friday, August 18, 2017 - 10:57
By Lino Owor Ogora
 
Uganda is currently the focus of two international criminal trials: that of Thomas Kwoyelo before the International Crimes Division (ICD) in Uganda, and Dominic Ongwen before the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Netherlands. Both Kwoyelo and Ongwen are charged with committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in northern Uganda while in the service of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).

Monday, August 14, 2017 - 18:29

Nika Jeiranashvili of the Open Society Georgia Foundation recently sat down for an interview with Justice Hub’s Janet Anderson in The Hague to talk about, among other things, why the ICC’s investigation into Georgian situation is special: “It represents the first time that the ICC has stepped outside Africa or that it will be the first time that the court will deal with an international conflict,” he said.

Jimena Reyes of FIDH: If the ICC wants to keep its legitimacy it has to open a preliminary examination in Mexico

Friday, July 14, 2017 - 13:25

What to do about a country that has experienced 200,000 murders and 32,000 disappearances over the last 10 years? According to a new report by the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), together with several Mexican human rights organisations, murders and disappearances within the northern state of Coahuila de Zaragoza are not "solely attributable to drug cartels". Rather state authorities have "committed crimes against humanity in undeniable collusion with the Zetas cartel", And, later, the NGOs say, "state authorities responsible for law enforcement directly committed crimes against humanity through their Special Forces". Presenting the report in The Hague, FIDH - with signatures from about 100 Mexican NGOs, urged the prosecutors at the International Criminal Court (ICC) to launch a preliminary examination.
