THE International Criminal Court (ICC) and the Assembly of States Parties (ASP) will tomorrow hold an event to begin the commemoration of July 17 as International Criminal Justice Day.

Fadi El Abdallah, Spokesperson and Head of Public Affairs Unit, International Criminal Court yesterday said the events marking July 17 were aimed at raising awareness and generating support for global justice and the fight against impunity.

July 17 is the Day of International Criminal Justice. The date was adopted by the Assembly of the States Parties during the Review Conference of the Rome Statute held in Kampala (Uganda) last year in June and marks the anniversary of the adoption of the Rome Statute, the founding treaty of the ICC.

The day commemorates the landmark steps that the international community is taking to reach the common goal of global justice, and an opportunity for those who support justice around the world to make their voices heard.

The ICC has therefore invited all those who wish to support justice, promote victims’ rights, and help prevent crimes that threaten the peace, security and well-being of the world to participate in these events.

Meanwhile, on July10, 2012, at 9:30 a.m.  (The Hague local time), Trial Chamber I of the ICC will deliver in open court its decisions pursuant to articles 75 (reparations to victims) and 76 (sentencing) of the Rome Statute in the case The Prosecutor v. Thomas Lubanga Dyilo.

The verdict in this case was rendered on March 14, 2012. Lubanga Dyilo, a former Congolese warlord, was found guilty of conscripting and enlisting children under the age of 15 and using them to participate in hostilities.
