Notes: Credits:
Last week, less than two weeks after Burundi's withdrawal from the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICC), the court announced that it is investigating allegations that Burundian officials committed crimes against humanity during the country's past three years of civil unrest.

The Rome Statute that created the court defines crimes against humanity:

Crimes against humanity are defined as any of the following acts when committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any
civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:
Deportation or forcible transfer of population
Imprisonment or other severe deprivation of physical liberty in violation of fundamental rules of international law
Rape, sexual slavery, enforced prostitution, forced pregnancy, enforced sterilization, or any other form of sexual violence of comparable gravity
Persecution against any identifiable group or collectivity on political, racial, national, ethnic, cultural, religious, gender, or other grounds that are universally
recognized as impermissible under international law
Enforced disappearance of persons
The crime of apartheid
Other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering,
or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health.
