La Haye features an in-depth interview with Tiina Intelmann, president of the ICC’s Assembly of States Parties, as well as updates on the case against former Ivorian president Laurent Gbagbo and the crisis in the Central African Republic.
You can find issues of La Haye on our Côte d’Ivoire webpage.
What’s the ICC doing in Côte d’Ivoire?
The ICC prosecutor has been conducting an investigation in the West African country since October 2011. Former president Laurent Gbagbo is set to face trial in The Hague in 2015, charged with orchestrating crimes against humanity during an electoral crisis in 2011. The leader of a youth militia loyal to Gbagbo will appear before ICC judges at the end of September to determine whether he should also face trial for similar alleged crimes. Simone Gbagbo, the wife of the former president, is also accused of alleged crimes against humanity and is currently in detention in Côte d’Ivoire and subject to domestic proceedings, although the ICC has requested her surrender to The Hague.
