Contentious cases
Jurisdiction and access are related

The issue of jurisdiction is considered to be closely related to access in terms of articles 3, 5
and 6 of the Protocol establishing the Court, and so may be considered at four levels - the
personal, material, temporal and geographical levels (Tanganyika Law Society, The Legal and
Human Rights Centre v The United Republic of Tanzania, application 009/2011; Reverend
Christopher R. Mtikila v The United Republic of Tanzania, application 011/2011, judgment,
14 June 2013, Separate Opinion of Judge Ouguergouz, paras 5 & 6; Actions Pour la
Protection des Droit de L’homme (APDH) v The Republic of Cote D’Ivoire, application
001/2014, Judgement, 18 November 2016, para 42).
