URC - El Salvador, Guatemala and NicaraguaGreater support for the International Criminal Court in the Central American region is needed in order to consolidate the Americas as a region fully committed in the fight against impunity. Out of 19 Latin American States, only 4 States have not ratified the Rome Statute, and in the Caribbean, more than half of all CARICOM Member States have already become States Parties to the Court. El Salvador, Nicaragua and Guatemala’s willingness to join its neighbors Costa Rica, Honduras and Panama in support of the ICC would be an important step in the effort to achieve more active Central American participation on this issue. Increased accessions to the Rome Statute from Central America will translate into a stronger voice for the region at the ICC and in making the Court a truly effective international mechanism for justice and peace.
The Rome Statute came into force in July 2002 and now has the support of more than half of the world’s nations. 108 states from across the globe have acceded to or ratified the treaty and 139 are signatories.
