The former Attorney General and Minister of Justice under the John Dramani Mahama government, Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong, have been appointed to a role at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Mrs Appiah-Oppong has been named to a three year term on the ICC’s Court of Arbitration.
The decision was taken during an ICC World Council Meeting in Paris last week.
“I am delighted that you have agreed to serve as part of the 1 July 2018 – 30 June 2021 term of office; the inauguration of this revitalized and fully gender-balanced Court opens a promising new chapter in the Court’s history with its largest, most regionally and generationally diverse network of members to date”, a letter from the President of the ICC to her read.
A practicing lawyer for over 20 years, she served as AG for the entire full term of President Mahama from February 2013- January 2017.
She earned worldwide acclaim after leading Ghana’s team in the Maritime Dispute against Cote d’Ivoire at the ITLOS (International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea), which we won.
