ICC President warns against complacency in message on International Criminal Justice DayListen /
Fifteen years after its establishment, the International Criminal Court (ICC) is undertaking more investigations, conducting more proceedings and giving a voice to victims.
That message comes from ICC President Judge Sang-Hyun Song in a statement marking International Criminal Justice Day, observed this Wednesday, 17 July.
Although creating a global justice project appeared to be an impossible task, he says the court today is "a vibrant, independent international organization" which is proof that audacious goals can be achieved.
However, Judge Song warns against complacency as he says the ICC still faces many threats including those who seek to politicise its action, question its value or refuse to cooperate with it.
