, Índice: IOR 53/004/2014

In this letter, African civil society and international organizations express their concerns regarding the Draft Protocol on Amendments to the Protocol on the Statute of the African Court on Justice and Human Rights. The draft protocol proposes an expansion to include criminal jurisdiction over genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity and protocol is expected to provide immunity for sitting heads of state and other high-level government officials before the African Court. The organizations are gravely alarmed by the provision of any immunity for serious crimes committed in violation of international law.
