The study examined the International criminal court on African Perspective to examine the international criminal court proceedings under part v of the Rome Statute (investigation and prosecution) and proposals for amendments. One of the main reasons for the need of an ICC was achieve justice for all. There have been many instances of crimes against humanity and war crimes for which no individuals have been held accountable. In Cambodia in the 1970s, an estimated 2 million people were killed by the Khmer Rouge. In armed conflicts in Mozambique, Liberia, El Salvador and other countries, there has been tremendous loss of civilian life, including horrifYing numbers of unarmed women and children. Massacres of civilians continue in Algeria and the Great Lakes region of Africa. In order to enable the parties to prepare for trial and to facilitate the fair and expeditious conduct of the proceedings, the Trial Chamber shall, in accordance with article 64, paragraphs 3 (c) and 6 (d), and article 67, paragraph (2), and subject to article 68, paragraph 5, make any necessary orders for the disclosure of documents or information not previously disclosed and for the production of additional evidence.
