The Disciplinary Council is an independent organ of the ADC-ICT. It is responsible for monitoring the conduct of members, adjudicating on complaints received against members and providing advisory opinions on ethical related matters and interpretation of the Constitution.
I am a barrister at the Bar of England and Wales (practising since September 2001). Since 2009, the focus of my practice has been defending in international criminal cases. I have represented, or assisted in the representation of, clients in a total of nine cases before the ICTR, STL, IRMCT and ICC. I am currently associate counsel for Mr Ali Muhammad Ali Abd-Al-Rahman (Darfur) before the ICC, and counsel for Mr Alphonse Nteziryayo before the IRMCT. I was also ad hoc associate counsel for Mr Al-Hassan (Mali) towards the end of the prosecution case, and during the victims’ case, before the ICC. In 2016-2017, I was chair of two inaugural ICCBA committees: the Training Committee and the Professional Standards Advisory Committee. I work just as comfortably in French as I do in English, an important advantage given the often multilingual nature of the work of the ICC.
