Chapter Summary

The judicial work of the International Criminal Court (ICC) gathered momentum with the arrest of Mr. Lubanga Dyilo on the 17th of March 2006, whose charges were confirmed on 29 January 2007. This chapter provides an overview of the jurisprudence of the Appeals Chamber until the beginning of 2008. It addresses (i) issues relating to the merits of appeals mounted, (ii) the admissibility of an appeal under Article 82 (1) of the Statute and the powers of the Appeals Chamber and (iii) appeals proceedings under Article 82 (1), including participation of victims. The Appeals Chamber also applied Article 32 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties to the Rome Statute in its judgment. The first jurisprudence of the Appeals Chamber did not only provide guidance on the merits of the appeals; it also contained findings on the admissibility of appeals under Article 82 (1).
