Historic Trail

The first ever historic trail took place in the International Criminal Court on 26th January 2009, it is a case relating to a child soldier. The significant features of this nascent organisation are the absence of sovereign immunity and to its representatives, formal proceedings relating to examination of witness. Countries like US, India has not submitted to the jurisdiction of ICC, because of its disagreements with the Rome Statute (ICC, was created as a result of the Rome statute).

The effective functioning of ICC is necessary in this era of genocide crimes. With Obama coming to power, there is an expectation that US would ratify the ICC rome statute, and India should also ratify the same and ensure that it is always a part of the world which loves and strives for a peaceful world.
