Charles Adeogun-Phillips, a Litigation Practitioner and a former Lead Prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, speaks to Wayamo Foundation’s Angela Mudukuti about the ICC’s decision to investigate Burundi.
Adeogun-Phillips discusses the perception that African states have been unfairly targeted by the International Criminal Court in The Hague and how that contrasts with African efforts to support the court. He also discusses the challenges facing African states looking to prosecute international crimes in domestic courts and relevance of the Crime of Aggression in Africa.
On 21 November 2017, the Wayamo Foundation hosted an International Symposium on the theme, “International Crimes, Domestic Justice – Accountability and Capacity Building in East Africa” in Kigali, Rwanda, where Charles Adeogun-Phillips was a participant.
Justice Talks are a series of interviews about justice and accountability in Africa and beyond, featuring experts and leaders from the fields of human rights, international criminal law, politics and civil society.
