This article provides an insight into the Residual Special Court for Sierra Leone (RSCSL), which was established by an agreement between the United Nations and the Government of Sierra Leone, to carry out the essential residual functions of the Special Court for Sierra Leone when it closes. The RSCSL epitomizes the commitment of the UN, the Sierra Leone Government, and the international community to ensure the continued protection of witnesses, the proper enforcement of the sentences of persons convicted by the SCSL, the continued respect of the rights of such persons by providing them with a sound judicial mechanism for the review of convictions and sentences, and that there is no impunity for the sole remaining SCSL fugitive after the closure of the SCSL. If the RSCSL manages to overcome the challenges identified in this article, it will become an important pillar of the new architecture of international criminal justice.
