Individuals, NGOs, Encouraged to File Cases at AfCHPR

EAC Partner States challenged to make declaration to allow NGOs and individuals file cases before the Arusha-based AfCHPR

East African Community (EAC) Partner States have been challenged to make declaration to allow non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and individuals file cases before the Arusha-based African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights (AfCHPR).

Addressing a 30-member delegation of Kenya’s International Peace Keeping Training Centre (IPSTC) and the National Steering Committee (NSC), the AfCHPR’s president, Justice Augustino Ramadhani, says that the African Court was based in East Africa and the region’s nations should take a lead in ratifying and making a Declaration to allow individuals, NGOs an other entities to bring cases directly to the court.

”Without such a declaration, the court will have no jurisdiction over cases brought by individuals and NGOs,” argues Ramadhani.
