International Criminal Court: Declarations amounting to prohibited reservations to the Rome Statute

By Amnesty International, , Index number: IOR 40/032/2005

Amnesty International is seriously concerned that some declarations made upon ratification by some states amount to disguised reservations. In this report Amnesty International examines declarations made by six states parties and concludes that a number of them amount to reservations.
