      Eighteen years later, however, following a period of widely decried abuses of basic liberties in several member states, the OAU's policy-making body adopted the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights (the Banjul Charter).(1) In late the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights, created by the Banjul Charter, started to function. An organ of the AU, the Commission is a quasi-judicial body established by the African Charter to monitor states’ compliance with the Charter. It is the oldest and most significant body responsible for the promotion, protection and monitoring of human rights in Africa.
