Abstract

The International Criminal Court convicted Al Mahdi of offences relating to cultural property under a provision of the Rome Statute that does not apply to the facts in the case. Broader issues arise about the uneven application of international criminal law to combatants depending upon whether they are government or rebels in the context of non-international armed conflicts.
