Amnesty International is very concerned that the government of Palau has recently signed a bilateral agreement with the United States of America (USA) providing impunity for US nationals who have been accused by the International Criminal Court of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, including crimes committed on the territory of your state. Amnesty International is writing to urge the government to refuse to ratify this agreement, which may violate Palau's obligations under international law.
