Welcome to the two-tier ICC

Assembly of States Parties #ASP16 plenary session
Friday, December 15, 2017 - 18:49
By Janet Anderson
 
There will be a lot of celebration that it actually got through. “It’s down to the wire” tweeted Amanda Gharemani of the Canadian Centre for International Justice. 
 
There’s already a lot of ‘historic’ and ‘momentous’. But the agreement to activate a fourth crime at the International Criminal Court (ICC) – that of aggression, in addition to genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes – is very limited. And those limitations reflect the current discussions and uncertainties about the ICC’s role that...

Tony Blair: Insufficiently African for an ICC indictment

	A demonstrator wearing a mask depicting former British Prime Minister Tony Blair protests outside QEII Centre in London on July 6, as they wait to hear the outcome of the Iraq Inquiry.
Wednesday, July 6, 2016 - 12:54

If you were curious how many people begrudge Tony Blair his liberty for his part in the monumental failure of judgment regarding the Iraq invasion, you got your answer this week. His critics are legion, and they want the International Criminal Court (ICC) to hurry up already and put him away.

The show of power and force orchestrated Tony Blair and George Bush in Iraq has backfired against and humanity is paying the price and yet the UN and the ICC have refused to do the needful! Today Libya is in ruins and yet ICC and the UN are absent!

What a world we live in!!!

Q & A: What is the crime of aggression?

Countries that have signed the proposed amendments on the crime of aggression in the Rome Statue
Thursday, March 19, 2015 - 09:39

Every few weeks, another country agrees that it too will support the suggested amendment to the ICC’s Rome Statute regarding ‘aggression’. But for most of us, it’s not clear what effect that amendment will have, and what it really means.

Israeli air strikes in Syria: an act of aggression?

Very good questions and I like the way they were formulated, and I like the very nice expressive cartoon about this subject. Of course it is a severe act of aggression, and of course it will destabilise the region's peace. But there is no peace in the region, that's very clear. And still there is no reaction back, and as always Israel can do what it wants. There is no legal justification at all, but they always feel themselves threatened. Even the UN Security Council, except Russia, did not condemn this Israeli illegal act and did not give any reaction till now, it's really unbelievable. If there comes one little bomb on Israeli soil, how will the West react?

With no doubt; it is an act of aggression, and a flagrant violation to the Syrian sovereignty and to the UN Charter. Israel can never justify such an attack which is inconsistent with international law. This Israeli act of aggression is undermining the UN principles and going to destabilize international peace and security in the region.
