Italy: Law reform needed to implement the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court

By Amnesty International, , Index number: EUR 30/009/2005

In this document Amnesty International encourages the Italian government to take prompt steps to draft, in a transparent manner involving close consultation at all stages with civil society, effective implementing legislation for the Rome Statute and other relevant international law. Nearly seven years after the adoption of the Rome Statute, Italy has failed to enact implementing legislation making it possible to investigate and prosecute crimes against humanity, for example, under international law. The organization hopes that the Italian government draft implementing legislation will incorporate the recommendations made in this document.
