Rome Statute of the
INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT
‘In the prospect of an international criminal
court lies the promise of universal justice. That
is the simple hope of the vision. We are close to
its realization. We will do our part to see it
through till the end. We ask you...to do yours in
our struggle to ensure that no ruler, no State, no
junta and no army anywhere can abuse human
rights with impunity (без покарання). Only
then we will the innocents of distant wars and
conflicts know that they may sleep under the
cover of justice; that they have rights, and that
those who violate those rights will be punished.’
