The International Criminal Court in 2016
The year 2016 preludes the start of three trials at the International Criminal Court (ICC). The trials of Mr. Ongwen, Mr. Al Mahdi and the trial of Mr. Gbagbo and Mr. Blé Goudé started in the same year while several trials drew to a close. Both Mr. Bemba and Mr. Al Mahdi were convicted for crimes committed in the Central African Republic and Mali, respectively. In a separate trial Mr. Bemba and his co-defendants were convicted of witness tampering. While some of the developments at the Court are promising, a closer look at both the legal and political developments warrants some caution. Some states remained uncooperative with the ICC, to the extent that three member states have left the ICC.
