The proposed international criminal section, though a novel idea in the regionalisation of international criminal law, its timing is suspect. Suspect because the said section only comes at a time when the International Criminal Court (ICC) has set upon Africa as its focal point in dealing with war crimes, crimes against humanity and other international crimes stipulated in the Rome Statute. This article attempts an analysis regarding the amendments proposed in the Protocol establishing the African Court of Justice and Human Rights relating to the international criminal chamber.
