Colombia deaths tribunal: Concerns over court's jurisdiction

International Criminal Court could open its own investigation, if it determines Colombian authorities are unable or unwilling to thoroughly investigate and prosecute over 2,000 cases.

    A special tribunal in Colombia is examining more than 2,000 cases of extrajudicial killings between 2008 and 2014.

    The look into the "false positive" scandal is part of the historic peace deal between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - known as the FARC.

    Critics, however, say the court lacks the powers to hold the culprits accountable.
