Judges’ comments

This is a newspaper report about the ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda who was a state counsel under Jammeh at a time when severe right violations happened including right to fair trial. The story is well written with a huge news value given the issues and the person involved within the current transitional justice program. The angling, presentation, originality and public benefit are appropriate. There is huge effort and initiative by the reporter to tediously research and obtain relevant information.
