The Coalition for the International Criminal Court and its members are calling on the Cameroon to take the necessary steps to move forward and ratify the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC). Increased ratifications of the Statute in the sub-region will help 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 30 States in Africa have already become States Parties to the Treaty, and15 others – including Cameroon on 17 July 1998, have signed the Rome Treaty but have yet to complete the process of ratification.
Additional Cameroon as a new Party to the Court would consolidate the region as 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.
