Brief thread. There's much discussion around whether the #ICC can hold trials or hearings in another country. It can, but it has declined to do so on multiple occasions, including in Libya, Kenya, DRC, and Uganda. Even in stable situations, it has chosen not to. #Bashir #Sudan
In some cases, both the prosecution *and* the defence were on board for an in situ hearing (for example in the case of Dominic Ongwen in northern Uganda) but were thwarted. This raises important questions about local vs international justice…
Those questions are too often characterized simplistically and/or reduced to mere issues of 'distance'. Being closer victims and survivors is crucially important and worthy in its own right, but hearings in situ also elevate the dependence of the #ICC on the states in question.

This could be huge! Victims have been waiting for justice for widespread atrocities committed in #Darfur for 15+ years. Keen to have more details on plans for #Bashir to at last face the #ICC charges against him. Some further info on case at @hrw:…
@hrw I first began working on the campaign to see perpetrators of widespread crimes in #Darfur held to account in 2004 as @HRW continued to document the extreme brutality against civilians:…
@hrw It was time when the prospect of the #UNSC coming together to ensure justice for the gravest crimes at the #ICC was more on the table than in recent years. (see:…). But given the #US anti-ICC position, it was far from a foregone conclusion.

#Russia-n mercenaries are now showing up everywhere in #Africa: one country in particular is the #CAR where Russians are also providing weapons. Also present in the #Niger Delta of #Nigeria actually helping the rebels that target the western oil companies.
Fascinating story on how #Russia entered the #CAR. It was blocking a delivery of weapons from #France to #Bangui so #Macron told CAR President to go and convince Russia to unblock the sale. Instead Russia saw an opportunity to sell its own weapons to CAR.
3 #Russian journalists killed in #CAR while filming #Wagner, the private military firm run by Evgeny #Prigozhin used especially in #Syria, part of #Putin's inner circle. Documentary was part of @tzurrealism, supported by Mikhail #Khodorkovsky.
