Abu Garda at the ICC

Lots going on today. At midday Hague time, Darfuri rebel, Abu Garda‘s confirmation of charges hearing began at the ICC. He is the first suspect to appear before the court in any of the Darfur cases.

It’s 4.30am where I am, so I’m afraid you’re not getting a summary from me right now, but there are helpful audio summaries that are worth listening to if you want to get of sense of how the various parties are going to play this.

Opening statements from:

Prosecution and Victims Representatives

Defence (and Abu Garda himself)
