The Special Criminal Court (SCC) of the Central African Republic was created on 3 June 2015 by Organic Law No. 15.003. Pursuant to Article 3, the SCC has jurisdiction to “try serious violations of human rights law and serious violations of international humanitarian law committed on the territory of the Central African Republic since 1 January 2003, as defined by the Central African Republic Penal Code, and under the international obligations entered into by the Central African Republic in the field of international law, in particular the crime of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.’’
The Court in Bangui, established in 2015, operates alongside the national courts and the International Criminal Court (ICC). The Court is addressing many complex and serious crimes in a dangerous environment, and operates with limited financial and human resources.
