Laurent Gbagbo case: ICC Presidency re-constitutes Trial Chamber I

On 17 September 2014, the Presidency of the International Criminal Court (ICC) re-constituted Trial Chamber I, which will be in charge of the Côte d’Ivoire case The Prosecutor v. Laurent Gbagbo. Trial Chamber I is now composed of Judge Cuno Tarfusser (Italy), Judge Olga Herrera-Carbuccia (Dominican Republic) and Judge Geoffrey Henderson (Trinidad and Tobago).

On 12 June 2014, Pre-Trial Chamber I confirmed, by majority, four charges of crimes against humanity (murder, rape, other inhumane acts or – in the alternative – attempted murder, and persecution) against Laurent Gbagbo and committed him for trial before a Trial Chamber. On 11 September 2014, Pre-Trial Chamber I rejected the Defence’s request for authorization to appeal the confirmation of charges decision in the case.
