Uganda hails election of its judge to serve at ICC

Kampala –  Ugandan judiciary on Thursday welcomed the election of Justice Solomy Bossa to serve at the International Criminal Court (ICC) based in The Hague, Netherlands.

Justice Mike Chibita, Director of Public Prosecutions, said that the Tuesday election of Bossa had elevated Uganda’s status in international law and confidence on its judiciary.

Bossa was elected at the 16th ongoing session of the Assembly of States Parties to the ICC at the UN Headquarters in New York.

Chibita said “it is a vote of confidence in the Ugandan judiciary and a recognition of the professionalism and role in ICC and international law in general.”

Bossa would join other five new judges from Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Western Europe elected on Tuesday to fill vacancies on the 18-member ICC.

They were required to have “established competence’’ in criminal law and procedures or in areas of international law, such as human rights law and humanitarian law.

Uganda in February nominated Justice Bossa, whose judicial and legal work spanned
almost three decades for being a highly accomplished judge at the national, regional and international level.

The ICC was established by the 2002 Rome Statute as an independent and permanent court to try persons accused of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. (Xinhua/NAN)
