Hold your horses - ICC complementarity

Courtside Justice with Mark Kersten
Thursday, June 16, 2016 - 17:29

A former first lady goes on trial for disturbing the peace and undermining state security in Abidjan. According to the International Criminal Court (ICC) and human rights groups, however, she should be prosecuted in The Hague for the crimes that she has been charged with by the Court. Lawyers in Côte d'Ivoire respond by alleging that Simone Gbagbo perpetrated crimes against humanity during the 2011 post-election violence — the same charges she’d face at the ICC. Looks good, right? Not quite.

Why is the Ivory Coast situation at the International Criminal Court?

Why is the Ivory Coast situation at the ICC?

Following disputed presidential elections in Ivory Coast in 2010, turmoil broke out. More than 3,000 people were reportedly killed in clashes opposing the incumbent president Laurent Gbagbo and opposition leader Alassane Ouattara.

Are you saying that Outarra supporters never killed the ones in support of Gbagbo? And as far as your concerned, isn't there an eligible way of having one sworn in as a president of any given country? And when are you going to start chronicling how lives in Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan came to be lost in such numbers? Who are the perpetrators and when are going to face the ICC. Libya and Iraq might have had dictators but at no one time did Iraq or Libya lose 300.000 or so of their people because of Saddam or Qaddafi being in power.

AS A BATTLE OVER VICTOR'S JUSTICE LOOMS, ICC SHOULD PERHAPS LET IVORY COAST PROSECUTE SIMONE GBAGBO

Courtside Justice with Mark Kersten
Thursday, May 12, 2016 - 13:47

The court in Ivory Coast has given Mrs. Gbagbo a significant sentence for her role in the post-election violence of 2010/11. Notably, her sentence is much harsher than those given by the ICC to the DRC warlords Thomas Lubanga and Germain Katanga. So perhaps it’s better for the Hague-based court to abandon its quest to prosecute Mrs. Gbagbo, and instead concentrate on the mammoth task ahead: holding other perpetrators of that violence, who also happen to be close to Ivorian President Quattara, accountable.

If the ICC wants to prosecute Laurent Gbagbo & his wife, they should go ahead. But they should remember that one person does no commit crimes alone, the two sides fought for a cause, each one therefore should be held responsible.

"I don’t think Africa is ready to leave the ICC", says Ivorian liberal politician

Mohamed Sylla is a special advisor, responsible for legal and electoral issues, for LIDER (Liberty and Democracy for the Republic)

Should the AU withdraw from the ICC? Will the trial of former Ivorian president Laurent Gbagbo lead to reconciliation in Ivory Coast? Just some of the questions that Justice Hub posed to a leading member of LIDER, a liberal Ivorian political party.
