La gestion du passif des crises post-électorales en Côte d’Ivoire en termes d’établissement des responsabilités, a emmené à une action de la Cour Pénale Internationale depuis 2011 en Côte d’Ivoire, à travers l’ouverture, d’une situation et de deux affaires dont celle Le Procureur c/Laurent Gbagbo et Charles Blé Goudé.

Les juges de la Cour pénale internationale (CPI) conduisent depuis janvier 2016 le procès de Laurent Gbagbo qui fut mis en détention à La Haye en novembre 2011. 

Le 15 janvier 2019, la chambre de première instance de la CPI a décidé d’acquitter Laurent Gbagbo et Charles Blé Goudé des accusations de crimes contre l’humanité portées contre eux. Toutefois, à la suite de l’initiation d’une procédure en appel, la Cour d’appel de la CPI a décidé de la remise en liberté sous conditions des deux hommes en attendant le début de la procédure d’appel.

20 années après l’adoption du Statut de Rome portant création de la CPI un bilan de son action semble opportun. Elle fait face à de nombreuses critiques surtout liées au choix des situations, pouvant à terme nuire à sa crédibilité. Le verdict dans l’affaire Laurent Gbagbo et Charles Blé Goudé a constitué une occasion supplémentaire de critiquer la stratégie d’enquête et de poursuite du bureau du Procureur.

Our Vision: a prosperous, equitable, sustainable and Democratic Ogoniland. 

  • We believe that externally designed explanations and solutions cannot be the answer to decades-long conflict in Ogoniland.
  • Our model of grantmaking is participatory based. one that is grounded in the belief that if affected communities participate in decision-making, grants will be allocated to those most able to create long-lasting change. 
  • We believe that funding is crisis in most effective when it is quiet and supportive rather than headline-grabbing, branded or invasive. 

The Executive Director of TrustAfrica, Dr Ebrima Sall, has called on graduates of higher education institutions to have a pan-Africanist vision and make tangible contributions to the development of the African continent by contributing to pertinent debates and conversations relating to the emergence of a new Africa.

It’s been over sixty years since oil was first discovered in Nigeria, approximately 25 years since oil operations were disrupted and halted in Ogoniland due to public unrest, and 24 years since human-rights activist Ken Saro-Wiwa and some of his Ogoni kinsmen were arrested, tried by a military tribunal and hanged by the Abacha regime on highly disputed allegations of complicity in the murder of four Ogoni chiefs. The oilfields and installations have since largely remained dormant, though major oil pipelines still cut cross Ogoniland and the environmental damage done to the land remains an issue of contention today. In a 15-year period from 1976 to 1991 there were reportedly 2,976 oil spills of about 2.1 million barrels of oil in Ogoniland, accounting for about 40% of the total oil spills of the Royal Dutch/Shell Company worldwide.

Ogoniland is made of up 6 kingdoms (BabbeGokanaKen-KhanaNyoKhanaEleme and Tai) and covers close to 1,000 square kilometers in Rivers state, Nigeria. Approximately 1 million people currently live in Ogoniland with close to 220 communities that extends across KhanaGokanaEleme and Tai local government areas.
