[JURIST] The Coalition for an Effective African Court on Human and People's Rights [advocacy website], an NGO based in South Africa, on Saturday criticized the process of nominating judges [press release, DOC] to the African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights during the ongoing African Union [official website] summit in Khartoum, Sudan. The coalition said that the nomination process lacked transparency and that several of the judicial candidates did not have adequate experience in human rights [JURIST news archive]. The coalition argues that the AU commission should be responsible for nominating judges to the court, rather than the member states. The protocol [text] for establishing the court came into effect last January and African leaders are expected to appoint judges to the court [Reuters report] Monday. PANA has more.
