ICC Prosecutor begins investigation in Guinea
Luis Moreno-Ocampo confirmed yesterday that the Office of the Prosecutor is beginning preliminary investigations on the situation in Guinea to determine if crimes committed fall under the Courts jurisdiction.
“From the information we have received, from the pictures I have seen, women were abused or otherwise brutalized on the pitch of Conraky’s stadium, apparently by men in uniform” said Deputy Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda. “This is appalling, unacceptable. It must never happen again. Those responsible must be held accountable”.
