Justice has no Borders

International Criminal Bar

The ICC hands down its fourth ever judgment on 21 March 2016 in the case against Jean-Pierre Bemba. The Congolese politician and militia leader is charged with responsibility for grave crimes allegedly committed by a militia under his control in the Central African Republic (CAR) in 2002-3. Here’s all you need to know ahead of the much-anticipated verdict in the first ICC trial involving “command responsibility” and the alleged use of rape as weapon of war.

The past 13 November 2015, a Panel of three Judges of the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Court (ICC), specifically appointed by the Appeals Chamber, reviewed Germain Katanga's sentence and decided to reduce it. Accordingly, the date for the completion of his sentence is set to 18 January 2016.

Today, 27 February 2015, the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued its judgment confirming, by majority, Trial Chamber II's decision of 18 December 2012 acquitting Mathieu Ngudjolo Chui of charges of crimes against humanity and war crimes. Judges Ekaterina Trendafilova and Cuno Tarfusser adopted a joint dissenting opinion and found that the Appeals Chamber should have amended or reversed the Trial Chamber's decision and ordered a new trial before a different Chamber.

On 3 March 2015, the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Court (ICC) will issue its ruling regarding reparations in the case against Thomas Lubanga Dyilo, found guilty of the war crimes of enlisting and conscripting children under the age of 15 years and using them to participate actively in hostilities. This decision will definitively determine the scope and procedures for reparations, providing long-awaited relief to victims of crimes committed by Lubanga in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Our organisations urge the ICC Appeals Chamber to confirm comprehensive principles on reparations in order to provide effective redress to victims, and call for a non-discriminatory and inclusive approach to their implementation.
