The Wayamo Foundation and the Rule of Law Programme for Sub-Saharan Africa of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung are proud to present a video gallery featuring judges and experts who address the problem of how to achieve justice and accountability for international and transnational organised crimes:
Fatou Bensouda, former Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), discusses the importance of judicial independence and the rule of law in highly politicised trials. She talks about the challenges she faced as ICC Prosecutor and how she coped with the pressure. She also discusses the impact of the ICC’s jurisprudence on international criminal justice in Africa, the importance of state cooperation, complementarity, and the role of domestic jurisdictions in fighting impunity.
The Wayamo Foundation and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation’s Rule of Law Programme for Francophone Sub-Saharan Africa are proud to announce the launch of three additional country pages on the “Justice in West Africa” website, a bilingual online resource platform of accountability efforts for international crimes.
Les débats et discussions ont commencé avec une conversation avec les deux invités d’honneur : Fatou Bensouda, Ancienne Procureure de la Cour pénale internationale, et Serge Brammertz, Procureur du Mécanisme international chargé d’exercer les fonctions résiduelles des Tribunaux pénaux. Le modérateur de la conversation, Thierry Cruvellier, rédacteur en Chef de Justiceinfo.net, a invité Madame Bensouda et Monsieur Brammertz à réfléchir sur le rôle et les relations entre les tribunaux internationaux et les États.
