Journalists from ICC situation countries in Africa have had to rely on the international media or the court’s unreliable online web-streaming in an environment with poor Internet connectivity. Journalists For Justice (JFJ) has been supporting African journalists to travel to the ICC to cover cases affecting their countries.

Dutchbuzz, the only local radio programme in English in The Hague, highlighted the challenges African journalists face while reporting the cases at the ICC through a conversation JFJ’s Thomas Verfuss had with two Ivorian journalists on their experiences reporting the trial of former Cote d’Ivoire’s president Laurent Gbagbo and his youth leader Charles Blé Goudé, who have been on trial since January 28, 2016. JFJ facilitated the two journalists’ trip to The Hague thanks to the support of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom.
