Two Weeks in Review, 27 February – 12 March

In his post, 'Nicaragua: Expatriation as an Aggravated Form of Political Persecution', Kai Ambos examines Nicaragua's decision to strip more than 300 dissident citizens of their nationality in the last two weeks. Ambos notes the removal of the nationality, first of all, violates the 1961 Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness and the right to nationality pursuant to Article 20 of the American Convention on Human Rights (ACHR). Further, he argues these measures taken are in fact widespread and systematic persecution of dissidents, amounting to a Crime against Humanity. Since Nicaragua is not a State Party to the Rome Statute and has secured a Russian veto in blocking a possible UN Security Council referral of the Nicaragua situation to the ICC (Article 13(b) Rome Statute), Ambos concludes that justice may be achieved by means of decentralized prosecutions in States such as Germany, willing to do so.
