Göran Sluiter: "The fate of the three Congolese witnesses in ICC detention has reached the level of absurdity"

< >

Amsterdam, 13 May 2014 - In an article posted on iLawyer Göran Sluiter writes that the continued detention by the International Criminal Court (ICC) since 2011 of his clients, three Congolese witnesses before the ICC who applied for asylum in the Netherlands, has reached the level of absurdity and requires urgent attention.

The three Congolese witnesses applied for asylum in 2011 in the Netherlands after having given testimony at the ICC in the Katanga and Ngudjolo trials. Their asylum claim spurred fierce and complex litigation, both at the ICC and before Dutch asylum and civil courts.

They are represented by Göran Sluiter, Marieke van Eik and Flip Schüller.
