Compensation

Cet article est Ă©galement disponible en : French, Arabic

Compensation can be provided to victims, individually or collectively, as confirmed by the statutes of African Extraordinary Chambers (CAE), “whether or not they participated in the proceedings”. The compensation that may eventually be given at the outcome of the trial will not be reserved for victims who stood for civil action. (Article 27 of the Statutes)

The statutes of the CAE provide room for three possible types of compensation: restitution, damages and rehabilitation. A compensation fund has been set aside for the benefit of victims of crimes within the jurisdiction of CAE and their dependents. This fund, according to the Statutes, “is funded by voluntary contributions from governments, international institutions, non-governmental organizations and other sources willing to provide support to victims.” (Article 28 of the Statute)
