Individual Criminal Liability at ICC: A Case Study

Aakanksha Malhotra

Abstract: This article is about the Individual Criminal Liability of the Individual at ICC. Here in this article my main focus is to highlight the crimes committed by an individual at an international level and the affixing the liability on such wrongdoer so that they or she must not be let free. This could be achieved with the help of International Criminal Court which is in the process of development and has provided the teeth to the provisions of the Rome statute by punishing the accused of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. The provisions of Rome statute has tried to protect the rights of both the accused as well as the victims and has even due regard to the safety and protection of the witnesses. Here in the Article, my focus would be on Article 25 of the statute which talks about the jurisdiction of ICC on every such person who commits the crime within the jurisdiction of the court and thus providing punishment and penalty for the same and it would include not only the offender who committed the offence directly but also the one who aided or abetted such crime. Further, I would be discussing the trial of Thomas Lubanga case and as to how he was prosecuted.
