SALC released a handbook in December 2014. The handbook, the first in the handbook series, entitled “Justice for all: Realising the Promise of the Protocol establishing the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights”, looks at the provisions of the Protocol establishing the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights and explains how the court can be accessed. While it makes reference to the Protocol on the Statute of the African Court of Justice and Human Rights, which has not come into effect, its main focus is on the existing African Court. The existing court is currently not vested with criminal jurisdiction and excludes the immunity proposed in the amendment to the Protocol on the Statute of the African Court of Justice and Human Rights. The handbook sets out how civil society can engage with this Court as it stands, and what can be done to ensure this existing court operates effectively.
