The Residual Special Court Made Simple - 2016

This first edition of “The Residual Special Court Made Simple” is produced by the Registry of the Residual Special Court for Sierra Leone. The booklet provides information on the mission and the functions of the Residual Special Court. Its objective is to make this information accessible to all Sierra Leoneans, including those living in parts of the country remote from Freetown, and to all those interested in the work of the Court.

This booklet reminds readers about the legacy of the Special Court and its role in addressing crimes that were committed during the war, and its work to end impunity and to re-establish the rule of law in Sierra Leone and in the sub-region. It provides information on the important role of the Residual Special Court in preserving the Special Court's legacy.

As in the first and second editions of “The Special Court Made Simple”, this booklet explains the functions of the Residual Special Court and certain key concepts in non-legal language, accompanied by illustrations which communicate the same message. These illustrations are not meant to be exact representations, but are meant to communicate ideas which can be abstract and complex.

This booklet is one of the Residual Special Court's many initiatives to provide insight and information on its continued functions after the closure of the Special Court.
