CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Dieudonn√© Nzapalainga of Bangui, in the Central African Republic, has suggested that the country’s justice system be integrated with the International Criminal Court that is now investigating human-rights violations. There is an “interminable list” of human-rights violations, he said, and many people do not have access to the international court, located in the Netherlands. While encouraging forgiveness of past wrongs, the cardinal said that “forgiveness has never rules out justice.”
