As a signatory to the Rome Statute Her Majesty's Government is bound to uphold its provisions, and introduced the International Criminal Court (ICC) Act in 2001 to incorporate the statute into UK Law. Beyond our support for the work of the Court in holding to account the perpetrators of the most serious crimes of international concern, we also provide both practical and financial support to the ICC and are campaigning for the election of a UK judge to ICC Judiciary.
