The Pretoria high court found that the government’s notice of withdrawal from the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court was procedurally invalid and unconstitutional. Tonight we unpack what this decision means for South Africa, domestically and in terms of our standing with the rest of the continent.

We speak to the Executive Director of the southern Africa Litigation Centre, Kaajal Ramjathan-Keogh about the implications of this judgement. Ottilia Anna Maunganidze, Head of special projects at the Institute for Security Studies gives us insight into the implications for South Africa in terms of International Relations with other states on our continent.
