African Leaders Urged to Honour Rome Statute

The United Nations urges AU member states to honour the Rome Statute regarding the criminal prosecution of a Head of State

United Nations (UN) secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, has urged African Union (AU) member states to honour their obligations to the Rome Statute regarding the criminal prosecution of a Head of State.
 
Ban, whose call comes after the AU’s resolution that no Head of State should be tried by the International Criminal Court (ICC) while in office, believes it is not for the Secretary General to interpret the provisions of the Rome Statute.

However, Ban trusts that the African Union and its member states will continue to engage with the ICC in a productive manner and he urges States party to the Rome Statute to continue to honour their obligations, in particular when implementing the decisions of the summit.
