2012 Peter Brett Memorial Lecture
Mrs Fatou Bensouda, Deputy Prosecutor and Prosecutor Elect, International Criminal Court
Mrs Bensouda will assume the role of Prosecutor of the ICC at a critical stage of the Court's history. “[I am]....committed to the goals of the Court and the legal mandate entrusted to the Prosecutor to end impunity for those responsible for the gravest offenses, bringing justice to their victims, and preventing future crimes.”
In her lecture she will discuss some of the challenges she expects to face in consolidating the current cases before the Court, all seven of which involve African countries, gaining custody of indicted accused still at large and in extending the Court's caseload to other regions of the world.
