OFFICIAL STATEMENT 121
Spain reiterates its full support for the International Criminal Court

​The Spanish Government would like to reiterate its full support for the International Criminal Court. It was created and implemented 20 years ago as the main body with full jurisdiction over the most heinous crimes and it represents a triumph of the International Community and multilateralism.

13/09/2018

Spain is firmly committed to the fight against impunity and to the International Criminal Court as the cornerstone of a universal system aimed at administering justice in cases of war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, ethnic cleansing and crimes of aggression. This commitment comes from the conviction that an order based on the Law and the rule of law is necessary, in which the fight against impunity must be ensured at a national level and, subsequently, at an international level, on the basis of the principle of complementarity; and in which victims’ right to be compensated, regardless of their nationality, is fully recognised.

Based on this conviction, Spain is committed to continued collaboration with the Court and calls on all States to continue to do so for the purpose of ensuring its effective actions and the universality of the Rome Statute.
