Abstract:The year 2008 saw important developments in international criminal justice in Africa. In 2008, all cases before the International Criminal Court (ICC) involved African States. An overview of these cases is provided. The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) in 2008 rendered its decision in the Bagosora case, and further implemented its completion strategy. This contribution provides an overview of these developments. In respect of the Special Court for Sierra Leone, the authors provide a summary and analysis of the Appeals Chamber's judgments in the Brima, Kamara and Kanu case and the case concerning the Civil Defence Forces. Developments towards the establishment of a Special Tribunal for Kenya, following the post-electoral violence in late 2007, are also reviewed. Notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
