Prosecutor’s statement in relation to situation in Central African Republic

The situation in the Central African Republic is deteriorating daily and the number of civilian victims affected by serious crimes continues to rise. To those allegedly responsible for these crimes, I say,  Understand this well: allegations of crimes under the Court’s jurisdiction, including attacks against civilians, murder and pillaging in the Central African Republic, are under close scrutiny by my office. This Court exists to end impunity for such crimes and our jurisdiction covers the whole of the Central African Republic. The people of the Central African Republic have already suffered too much. I will not hesitate to prosecute those responsible for their suffering.
