The Permanent Secretariat of the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute

http://untreaty.un.org/cod/icc/index.html

  …”In light of the establishment of the Permanent Secretariat of the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute (by resolution ICC-ASP/2/Res.3, adopted at the second session of the Assembly on 12 September 2003), the United Nations Secretariat will cease to serve as the Secretariat of the Assembly on 31 December 2003. This web site, therefore, only reflects developments up until that date. Information on subsequent activities should be obtained from the web site of the International Criminal Court itself (http://www.icc-cpi.int/index.php)“…….

I am wondering if the ICC is really independent.

We as Worldcitizens do need an Independent Judgement in the cases of crimes against humanity.

I do not have the time to go through all the links I’ve found, but save them here.

Then anyone, including me, can use them, if necessary.

When I was young the expression of “Banana republics”was meant for just some countries, but these days I am afraid that we have ended up in a “banana-ODD-wo”.

  2. Many people are mixing up the International Court of Justice

    http://www.icj-cij.org/
    The International Court of Justice was established by the Charter of the United Nations, which provides that all Member States of the United Nations are ipso facto parties to the Court’s Statute. The composition and functioning of the Court are organized by this Statute, and by the Rules of the Court which are drawn up by the Court itself.
    Since October 2001, the Court has also issued Practice Directions for use by States appearing before it.

    and the

    International Criminal Court

    http://www.icc-cpi.int

    See for yourself and discover the very important differences.

    STATUTE
    OF THE
    INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE
    TABLE OF CONTENTS:
    Chapter I: Organization of the Court (Articles 2 – 33)
    Chapter II: Competence of the Court (Articles 34 – 38)
    Chapter III: Procedure (Articles 39 – 64)
    Chapter IV: Advisory Opinions (Articles 65 – 68)
    Chapter V: Amendment (Articles 69 & 70)

    http://www.icc-cpi.int/en_menus/icc/about%20the%20court/Pages/about%20the%20court.aspx
    The International Criminal Court (ICC), governed by the Rome Statute, is the first permanent, treaty based, international criminal court established to help end impunity for the perpetrators of the most serious crimes of concern to the international community.

    http://www.icc-cpi.int/NR/rdonlyres/ADD16852-AEE9-4757-ABE7-9CDC7CF02886/283503/RomeStatutEng1.pdf

    The ICC is an independent international organisation, and is not part of the United Nations system. Its seat is at The Hague in the Netherlands. Although the Court’s expenses are funded primarily by States Parties, it also receives voluntary contributions from governments, international organisations, individuals, corporations and other entities.

    The international community has long aspired to the creation of a permanent international court, and, in the 20th century, it reached consensus on definitions of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. The Nuremberg and Tokyo trials addressed war crimes, crimes against peace, and crimes against humanity committed during the Second World War.

    In the 1990s after the end of the Cold War, tribunals like the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and for Rwanda were the result of consensus that impunity is unacceptable. However, because they were established to try crimes committed only within a specific time-frame and during a specific conflict, there was general agreement that an independent, permanent criminal court was needed.

    On 17 July 1998, the international community reached an historic milestone when 120 States adopted the Rome Statute, the legal basis for establishing the permanent International Criminal Court.

    The Rome Statute entered into force on 1 July 2002 after ratification by 60 countries.
