Certain Criminal Proceedings in France (Republic of the Congo v. France)

Issue in International Court of Justice

The Republic of Congo accused France of ‘arrogating to itself the power to prosecute and try the Minister of the Interior of a Foreign State for crimes allegedly committed by him in connection with the exercise of his powers for the maintenance of public order in his country.’

The Republic of Congo indicated that Article 38, paragraph 5, was overruled. 

As a result of this alleged violation, according to the Republic of Congo, the International Court of Justice became involved in this case.
