Interview with Sean Butler, President and Secretary of the International Criminal Court Alliance


An introduction to the International Criminal Court (ICC), including a brief discussion of its history and relation to the United Nations and the International Court of Justice (IJC.) Atrocities in Africa and the court’s action on them is discussed, as well as the three types of crimes that the court addresses. Sean talks about the tragedy of child soldiers, mutilation, and rape that are prevalent in African war zones. Particular attention is given to the details surrounding the indictment of Omar al-Bashir, President of Sudan, and guerrilla leader Thomas Lubanga Dyilo, who is currently on trial at the ICC. This very informative interview covers a great deal about the International Criminal Court and serves to orient the viewer to its means, methods and purpose.
