International Criminal Court Launches 10th Anniversary Website

 On April 20, 2012, the International Criminal Court (ICC) launched a separate website to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the entry into force of the Rome Statute.

After 60 States had ratified the Rome Statute, the ICC started its activities on July 1, 2002.

Ten years later the Court is a fully functional institution supported by 121 States Parties. It has undertaken seven investigations, 15 cases and issued 20 arrest warrants. Earlier this year it had its first conviction.

The new website provides free tools, including publications and audio-visual materials, for those hosting events to celebrate this anniversary. The website features a calendar of such events, a photo gallery, press releases, and further background information about the Court.
