Chapter Summary

The accused in this case of consolidated indictment is Alex Tamba Brima, who joined the Sierra Leone Army (SLA) in April 1985 and rose to the rank of Staff Sergeant. Alex Tamba Brima, Brima Bazzy Kamara, Santigie Borbor Kanu and all members of the organized armed factions engaged in fighting within Sierra Leone were required to abide by International Humanitarian Law and the laws and customs governing the conduct of armed conflicts, including the Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949, and Additional Protocol II to the Geneva Conventions, to which the Republic of Sierra Leone acceded on 21 October 1986. By their acts or omissions, pursuant to Article 6.1. and, or alternatively, Article 6.3. of the Statute, Brima , Kamara, and Kanu are individually criminally responsible for Acts of Terrorism, unlawful killings, sexual and physical violence, enlisting children into armed forces, abduction and forced labour, looting, and attacking UNAMSIL peacekeepers.
