Chapter Summary

Most issues that will normally resurface in a research about an international criminal Court, its particularities and evolution, may be followed by reviewing its jurisprudence. This applies more than in other cases to the Special Court for Sierra Leone. This chapter reviews the establishment and early work of the Special Court through its jurisprudence and is divided in 6 sections: 1) The question of the legality of the Court under International Law; 2) The question of the legality of the Court under National Law of Sierra Leone; 3) The question of the legality of Amnesties and the Temporal Jurisdiction of the Court; 4) The question of how funding the Court from Voluntary contributions impacts on its judicial independence; 5) The question of the personal jurisdiction of the Court; and 6) The question of how the Treaty basis of the Court can influence its work.
