An informative take on the ramifications of the latest 12(3) declaration. Although I agree with Kevin on the status of Crimea, it will be interesting to see how the OTP formulates its arguments in that respect given the haphazard way in which it dealt with the Morsi declaration regarding Egypt. Perhaps it will clarify that an 'effective control' test is not in fact part of the consideration and that UN recognition remains the go-to factor.

Two thoughts.

First, I think the status of Crimea is a non-issue. International law is very clear that territory cannot be forcibly annexed, so I don't see any even cognisable argument that Crimea is not still Ukrainian territory. And I would be shocked if the judges spent more than a paragraph in a jurisdiction decision dealing with it.

Second, I don't understand why an ICC investigation into MH-17 might encourage Russia to permit the UNSC to create an ad hoc tribunals. Ad hocs work -- at least in terms of obtaining suspects and evidence. The ICC doesn't. So I think Russia would be overjoyed if the ICC got involved.
