International Criminal Court: Checklist to ensure the nomination of the highest qualified candidates for judges
The election of six judges of the International Criminal Court is scheduled to take place on 26 and 27 January 2006 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The nomination for candidates closes on 9 October 2005. States that have ratified the Rome Statute or other states that ratify the Rome Statute by 9 October are eligible to nominate their nationals or nationals from other states parties for judges. This checklist has been issued by Amnesty International recommending measures states should take to nominate the most highly qualified candidates for these positions.
