What Africans think about the current international justice system

Monday, December 18, 2017 - 12:57

Zimbabwean researcher Ruth Murambadoro firmly believes that justice is best applied when it has a local flavour. 

“I feel our [current] justice system fails us. It only attends to my physical wound and not the psychological and spiritual wound. So I consider the current justice systems to be failing to appease the spirit.”

Bitter legacy

72-year-old Slobodan Praljak took his own life on Wednesday at ICTY
Friday, December 1, 2017 - 08:37

By Stephanie van den Berg

It was supposed to be a predictable appeals verdict in the case of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia against six Bosnian Croat officials. Important. But not one of the tribunal’s highest-profile cases. And made special to a degree because it was the last verdict the ICTY would ever pronounce.

I went with a feeling of nostalgia; the end of an era for me, as the tribunal I spent so much time covering was really closing. I spent so much time in the marbled lobby of the court covering cases which included the...

New court room at the International Criminal Court
Friday, September 23, 2016 - 11:55

Without the testimony of witnesses, trials at the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the tribunals could not take place.

The al-Mahdi case and thematic prosecution

ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda
Thursday, September 8, 2016 - 13:40

The nature of crimes as a guiding factor in determining the gravity of a case, potential or real, is based on a doctrine, known as ‘thematic prosecution’. Thematic prosecution orients cases based on the criminal themes. In other words, a case is selected on the strength of the charge(s) it includes.

Dragi Mirza, tvoja životna priča dirnula me direkt u srce, znam šta je progon i znam šta znači prilagođavati se cijeli svoj život... Bosna je puna omladine koja nije zapamtila svoje očeve ili nije imala prilike nikada ih upoznati... Zato sve priče treba ispričati, otvoriti svoje srce i pouke iz njih izvući, jer tako često smo bezrazložno nezadovoljni... Tebi Mirza želim svu sreću na svijetu!!!

Tako nešto nisam mogla ni zamisliti da mladi govore i misle, osim moje djece i nekoliko njihovih prijatelja. Mislim da bi ra, trebao poslati svima u BiH i šire, staviti ne više društvenih stranica, medijima, može i političarima, ako to ikad pročitaju.Sad znam da nisu samo moja djeca i nekoliko njihovih prijatelja, kao i njihovi parteneri, nisamo sami u Tuzli, niti u BiH i šire.

Dragi Mirza, samo što je poteklo iz srca može doći do srca. Ova misao je "čučala" u tvom srcu-pa to se osjeti! Hvala Bogu na ovoj prilici da kažeš svoju bol i usud i jer si svojim riječima učinio da ona bude i naša. Veliki pozdrav

This is beautiful. My hope is that proposed ideas reach our leaders and are put in to practice especially in my country South Sudan. It really needs ideas so badly.

Am South Sudanese, what happened in my country was unexpected and total embrassement especially for our heroes, martys, donations country, partners and our father Sudan. My condolences to human race and ask the world body to bring those commited crime against humanity to ICC showing the really justice since their children are out of war zone because their f uture will not fail and so i request installation of UN force to every country to provide security in internal and external camps and fush the warring parties to bring peace and stability to their respective country and let UN evacuate the children, girls and women protecting them from raping.

My advice to UN peace is to be serious and be brave because their position are to service, secure, assist and provide necessary needs to affecting human and if there is any attack to UN force camp, IDP and external camp there must be response automatically in self defense.
