HRW Calls for the Strengthening of ICC

The Human Rights Watch urges member states of the International Criminal Court to use the upcoming review conference to push forward justice for the worst international crimes

The Human Rights Watch (HRW) says the member states of the International Criminal Court (ICC) should use the upcoming review conference in Uganda to push forward justice for the worst international crimes.

In its 102-page report entitled, 'Making Kampala Count: Advancing the Global Fight Against Impunity at the ICC Review Conference', the rights body is also calling on member states to use preparations, conference discussions and pledges of greater support for the ICC to increase the likelihood that the most serious perpetrators will be held to account.

''This is a moment for ICC members meeting in Kampala to send a message to perpetrators and would-be perpetrators that they will face justice,'' says HRW’s international justice director, Richard Dicker.
