NGOs: Prosecute Human Rights Violators
Two NGOs, Southern Africa Litigation Centre and Zimbabwe Exiles Forum, want South Africa to prosecute Zimbabwean officials accused of crimes against humanity.
The North Gauteng High Court will hear a landmark case on South Africa’s obligations as a signatory to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
As a signatory to the Rome Statute, which it incorporated into national law by passing the Implementation of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court Act 27 of 2002, SA committed itself to investigate and prosecute perpetrators of serious international crimes, irrespective of where they take place.
