Marshall Islands: Open letter to members of Parliament of Marshall Islands: Bi-lateral agreement with the USA concerning the International Criminal Court.

, Index number: ASA 51/001/2003

Amnesty International is very concerned that the government of the Marshall Islands has recently signed a bilateral agreement with the USA providing impunity for US nationals' accused of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. Amnesty International is writing to urge parliamentarians to refuse to ratify this agreement which violates the Marshall Island's obligation as a state party to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
