ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda granted an interview to JusticeInfo.net. She strongly rejects accusations that the International Criminal Court is delivering one-sided justice and is concerned about the consequences for Africa if some States pull out of the ICC. Referring particularly to the Court’s fiasco over Kenya, Bensouda strongly condemns pressure and intimidation of her witnesses and a political climate that makes exercising justice difficult. But she asserts her determination to prosecute sitting Heads of State if necessary. In this interview, the Prosecutor also talks about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Colombia, Côte d’Ivoire, Afghanistan and Georgia, the changes she is making to her penal strategy and reforms she has initiated to make prosecution cases stronger and justice more efficient.
