Call for African states to reject immunity for serious crimes by African civil society organisations and international organisations with a presence in Africa

, N° d'index: IOR 63/001/2014

In this open letter, African civil society organisations and international organisations with a presence in Africa working on human rights and criminal justice, join together to express their deep dismay and opposition to the recent adoption by African Union (AU) member heads of states of an amendment to the Statute of the African Court of Justice and Human Rights that would preclude the African Court from trying sitting heads of state and government, as well as certain other senior state officials, for serious crimes committed in violation of international law.
