Important notice, November 15th, 2013

This commentary has been integrated in the Case Matrix Network. The commentary has also changed name to Commentary on the Law of the International Criminal Court (CLICC). The commentary at the CLICC website has more updated case law, longer and more in-depth comments on the Rome Statute. The website you are visiting now will be removed, please change any bookmarks or links to the current website, please bookmark and link to the CLICC website instead. I will remain as the Editor of the CLICC and now also with the institutional support of the Case Matric Network to the benefit of the commentary.
