On Friday, Alicia from the WHYS team will be travelling to International Criminal Court to visit its prosecutor, Luis Moreno Ocampo. He’s kindly agreed to take questions for the whole hour, and you can either leave them here, or email me your comment and your phone number if you’d to come on air. Here’s some more info…
Luis Moreno Ocampo has been in the job since 2003, and for details of his career before then this profile is a good start.
But I’m guessing the majority of your questions will concern his current job, and the ICC. It’s become involved in raising concerns about prosecutions that have followed post-election violence in Kenya. Then of course there’s the arrest warrant on Sudan’s President. It will soon begin the war crimes trail of Congo vice president Jean-Pierre Bemba, and back in 2004 passed comment on events in the Middle East.
These are just four examples of many.
Then there is the issue of the ICC’s very existence and its jurisdiction.
Whatever subject relating to his work, Luis Moreno Ocampo is happy to speak with you, so please start posting your questions.
