In June 2014, there was a meeting in Malabo by the AU Assembly of Heads of States and the Government of Equatorial Guinea. There was adoption of the Protocol on Amendments to the Protocol on the Statute of the African Court of Justice and Human Rights (the Malabo Protocol) and called on AU Member States to sign and ratify it. This research will address the impact of the Malabo Protocol and its fight against the impunity that exists on the continent. The research will also take into account unaccustomed ‘international’ crimes addressed in the Malabo Protocol which seeks to establish an international criminal tribunal. I will apply the qualitative method in assessing my research. I will employ neo-liberalism and neo-institutionalism as the theoretical framework for this research. This research will be done solidly on the basis of secondary sources but will also employ sources such short interviews. The study will also highlight how the Malabo Protocol if administered professionally can help bring to book offenders of international crimes. I will also recommend some measures which can help facilitate the full realization of the Malabo Protocol.
