The ICC is a permanent international criminal court. It was created in July 1998
when 120 States adopted the Rome Statute, which is a multilateral treaty. The ICC is
located in The Hague. It is distinct from other international courts in The Hague:
firstly, the International Court of Justice (“The World Court”), which only adjudicates
disputes between States; and secondly, the International Criminal Tribunal for the
former Yugoslavia (ICTY), which is an ad hoc tribunal created by the UN Security
Council with jurisdiction over crimes committed in the former Yugoslavia.
Another important fact, in the Nepali context of transition from long conflict to peace,
is that the Rome Statute will not apply to Nepal retroactively. This means that the
ICC cannot act with respect to crimes committed during the 11-year conflict or during
the Jana Andolan of April this year. As Nepalis seek accountability and justice for
violations committed throughout the conflict and Jana Andalon, it is up to the Nepal
Police, Government Attorneys and courts to carry out criminal investigations and
prosecutions.
