Laurent Gbagbo’s trial to open before ICC Trial Chamber I on 7 July 2015

 On 17 November 2014, Trial Chamber I of the International Criminal Court (ICC) set the commencement date for the trial in the case The Prosecutor v. Laurent Gbagbo for 7 July 2015. The Chamber also directed the ICC Prosecution to provide, no later than 6 February 2015, full disclosure of all material, evidence and expert reports to the Defence as well as its list of witnesses and list of evidence to be relied on at trial.

Trial Chamber I is composed of Presiding Judge Geoffrey Henderson (Trinidad and Tobago), Judge Cuno Tarfusser (Italy) and Judge Olga Herrera-Carbuccia (Dominican Republic).

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.
