Congolese on the International Criminal Court

The International Criminal Court (ICC) was set up in 2002 to try those responsible for the most serious crimes in the world - such as genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.

So far, all 24 people facing charges - and the only person convicted - are from Africa, leading to accusations of bias. The African Union has said member countries should stop cooperating with the court.
