Security Council Resolution 1422 (first passed in July 2002 and renewed as Resolution 1487 in June 2003) grants immunity to personnel from ICC non-States Parties involved in United Nations established or authorized missions for a renewable twelve-month period. CICC members support the conclusions of legal experts from many nations that Security Council Resolution 1422 is incompatible with the Rome Statute, demonstrates the improper use of the Security Council, and contradicts the UN Charter and other international law.

This section includes the texts of Resolutions 1422 and 1487, government statements made at the Security Council Open Meetings on these resolutions in 2002 and 2003, as well as legal analyses, press releases, and other documents by the CICC and its members.
