URC - TogoThe Coalition for the International Criminal Court calls on Togo to join the Rome Statute of the ICC as soon as possible.
The Coalition for the International Criminal Court (CICC) is calling on the Republic of Togo to take the necessary steps to accede to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC). There has been an increase in the numbers of countries that have ratified the Rome Statute of the ICC, especially in Africa. Togo’s ratification of the Rome Statute will further strengthen the African voice at the Court and result in a more robust and meaningful participation in the global struggle to establish a truly fair, effective and independent ICC.
To date, 33 states in Africa have already become states parties to the ICC. In addition, 15 more states have signed the Rome Statute, but have yet to complete the process of ratification.
As a new state party, Togo would consolidate its stature within the continent as a member of those nations that are fully committed to this historic institution – the first permanent, independent court capable of investigating and bringing to justice individuals who commit the most serious violations of international humanitarian law, namely war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.
