We are talking about acts of intimidation and unacceptable attempts by Russia to undermine the mandate of the International Criminal Court.

The Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute, where the International Criminal Court (ICC) operates in The Hague, expressed deep concern about the announcement in Russia of the IC prosecutor, Karim Khan. This was stated in the statement of the Assembly, which was released on Saturday, May 20.

“The Head of the Assembly deplores these acts of intimidation and unacceptable attempts to undermine the mandate of the International Criminal Court to investigate, punish and prevent serious international crimes,” the statement said.

It is noted that the protection of the virtue of the court, especially, its judicial and prosecutorial independence, is essential to the successful fulfillment of its mandate: “We reaffirm our full confidence in the ICC as an independent and impartial court.”

The Assembly also called on all states to respect the independence of the ISS and “unite in the fight against impunity.”

On the eve it became known that the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia placed the prosecutor of the ISS, Karim Khan, on the wanted list under an unnamed criminal article.

As you know, on March 17, the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin, accusing him of illegally deporting thousands of children from Ukraine.

The Kremlin hastened to declare that the Russian Federation does not recognize the jurisdiction of the ISS and that they consider its decisions “insignificant”.
