ICC Prosecutor hails arrest, transfer of war crime suspect

The Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda, has hailed the arrest and transfer of a war crime suspect from the Central African Republic to the Hague in the Netherlands for trial.

Mr Mahamat Saïd Abdel Kani will face justice for his alleged crimes as charged before the ICC. 

He is the third suspect arrested in ongoing investigations in the Central African Republic (“CAR”), and the first person to be arrested from the Séléka side to the conflict.

The prosecution alleges that Mr Saïd is criminally responsible for several counts of crimes against humanity and war crimes committed in CAR between April and November 2013.
