Ghana News Agency – African regional courts must prosecute international crimes – Gambia Chief Justice

D. Davies – The Gambia, May 9 2018.

Banjul (The Gambia) Regional Courts in Africa should be allowed to prosecute international crimes as a way of strengthening complementarity on the Continent, Chief Justice Hassan Jallow of The Gambia suggested.

“I remain convinced that complementarity can and should be taken a notch higher by vesting African regional courts such as the ECOWAS Court and the East African Court of Justice with the mandate to prosecute international crimes,” Mr. Jallow said at the Recent West African Stakeholders’ Consultation on Emerging Trends on Complementarity in Banjul, convened by AFLA.
