ICC rejects special treatment for Colombia's military war crime suspects

by Adriaan Alsema November 1, 2018

The deputy prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) told Colombiaís President Ivan Duque on Thursday that his office rejects judicial benefits to military war crime suspects and criminals promoted by the government.

During a visit to Colombia on Thursday, the ICC official met with Duque and the president of the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP), Patricia Linares.

Deputy Prosecutor James Stewart expressed not just concern about the controversial plans to create a special chamber dedicated to military war crimes, but reiterated the international courtís concern about the JEPís lack of powers to impose penalties on commanders who are responsible for crimes committed by their subordinates.

Last year, the court said it specifically expected the JEP called 23 generals and six colonels to justice over their responsibility in the mass killing of civilians who were falsely represented in the media as guerrillas killed in combat.
