OFFICIAL STATEMENT 052
Spain Reiterates its Support for the International Criminal Court and Stresses the Need for all States to Cooperate in the Fight Against Impunity

​Spain would once again like to express its support for the Rome Statute and the International Criminal Court, the highest example of universal justice and the main body to combat impunity of the most atrocious crimes. The International Criminal Court is an essential instrument in the international community and the cooperation from States is a priority in order for it to work well.

18/03/2019

Spain reiterates that, pursuant to article 19 of the 1969 Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, there is the obligation for the states that are signatories of a convention to refrain from undertaking acts which defeat the aim and purpose of a treaty, even when said treaty has not be ratified by the signatory state.
 
Spain fully supports the legitimacy, independence and impartiality of the Court and reminds of its complementary nature to national criminal jurisdictions, which have formal superiority regarding these crimes.
