ICC – International criminal court

What is the International Criminal Court?

The world’s first permanent international criminal court was founded in July 1998 and went into force in July 2002. It is an independent body, governed by the Rome Statute, an international treaty that established it.

Who belongs?

The court has more than 120 member nations. But countries that are not members include the United States, China, India, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Qatar and Israel.

The U.S. signed the treaty during the Clinton administration, but Congress did not ratify it. President George W. Bush s administration later opposed the court, saying it could bring politically motivated investigations and prosecutions of Americans, such as military officials. Russia signed the treaty in 2000, but like the United States, did not ratify it.

“Although the United States is not a party to the ICC’s statute, the Obama administration has been prepared to support the court’s prosecutions and provide assistance in response to specific requests from the ICC prosecutor and other court officials, consistent with U.S. law, when it is in U.S. national interest to do so,” the State Department says on its website.

What does it do?

The court investigates and tries people for the most serious crimes of concern to the international community — genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. It says its aim is “to hold those responsible accountable for their crimes and to help prevent these crimes from happening again.”

Where is it based?

The court is based in the Hague, in the Netherlands. The Hague, the country’s third-largest city and located on the North Sea coast, is also home to the Dutch Parliament, the U.N. International Court of Justice, various embassies and the historic 16th-century Noordeinde Palace.

Does it have legal authority?

The ICC can prosecute for crimes committed in member countries and by citizens of member nations who commit crimes elsewhere. In 2012, the court sentenced former Liberian president Charles Taylor to 50 years in prison for his role in war crimes committed during the civil war in neighboring Sierra Leone in the 1990s.

How is it funded?

The court is mainly funded by its member nations. Extra funds come from voluntary contributions by governments, individuals and organizations.
