D. Davies – London, Jan 30 2018.

The long-awaited activation of the Crime of Aggression under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICC) has taken place and will come into force on July 17, 2018. This would coincide with the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Rome Statute of the Global War Crimes Court.

The decision was taken during last month’s 16th Assembly of State Parties to the Rome Statute in New York after 10 days of intense diplomatic negotiations.
