Gerald Niyungeko, a judge and a former President of the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights, speaks to Wayamo Foundation’s Judie Kaberia about how the immunity issue may hamper African Court.

Niyungeko discusses the challenges facing the African Court, and argues that a regional judicial platform offers the best way to deal with complementarity and the International Criminal Court in The Hague. He also suggests that dialogue is needed between the ICC and the African Court.

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 Gerald Niyungeko 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.
