Le procès Al Mahdi : « Un pas de géant » pour la Cour pénale internationale ? Mali :
Revue québécoise de droit international Année 2017 1-1 pp. 101-124
On September 28, 2016, the Trial Chamber of the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued its verdict in the case of The Prosecutor v Ahmad Al Faqi AlMahdi concerning the destruction of the mausoleums of Timbuktu. This trial, perceived as an historic moment, was eagerly awaited by actors of international criminal justice, because it was the first time that the Court has known, since its creation, a case concerning violations of the rules that protect cultural heritage . However, the Court’s decision, having regard to the means by which it was intervened, namely the guilty plea, seems to limit the contribution of the first judgment on cultural property according to some observers. This article reviews different points of view and provides a critical analysis of the issues at trial regarding the future of the ICC, namely the meaning of the guilty plea, its impact on the trial and the expectations of the victims, the future of the repression of violations of the rules for the protection of cultural property as well as the strategy of the prosecutor’s office in the management of this case.
