Libyans should decide on ICC involvement

ICC

The International Criminal Court or ICC could be called into to investigate allegations of human rights abuses in Libya, but only if the authorities in the North African country make a request for it to do so.

The ICC, was created in 2002 and is a permanent tribunal created to prosecute individuals for genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.

The court said it would only act if Libya accepts its jurisdiction or if the Security Council asks it to act.

Reem Abaza asked Fady Al-Abdallah from the ICC if either of those conditions were in place.
