[Event] Celebrate International Justice Day on 17 July – CICC

Dear all,

The Coalition for the International Criminal Court is preparing to celebrate International Justice Day on 17 July in honor of the thirteenth anniversary of the adoption of the Rome Statute – the founding treaty of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

On this date 13 years ago, with the overwhelming support of 120 nations, the Rome Statute was adopted, leading to the creation of the world’s first permanent international court to prosecute war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide.

Today 116 nations have joined the Court and the number keeps growing. International Justice Day is a reminder of the urgency for all States committed to justice to ensure continued support for the Rome Statute’s international justice system.

As it has been the case for many years, the Coalition will commemorate this day in solidarity with victims of crimes against humanity, genocide and war crimes through a number of worldwide events.

Please do not hesitate to share any International Justice Day initiatives or documents with us at: advocacy@coalitionfortheicc.org

Also feel free to post events and comments on the new ICC International Justice Day Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/InternationalCriminalJusticeDay

More information will be sent to you on this mailing list as we approach 17 July 2011.
