Abstract

The annotated Code of International Criminal Law and Procedure is the first commentary that discusses both the ICC Statute and the Statutes of the ad hoc tribunals in a systematic way. This is supplemented by a discussion of the Rules of Procedure and Evidence of the ICC.

The ICC is still very much a fledging institution. Its Statute has many ambiguities, and is constantly tested by new realities and unforeseen challenges on the ground. The jurisprudence interpreting the ICC-Statute is rapidly evolving, and the legal commentary related to the Court is expanding swiftly.
This makes a recently updated Commentary on the Rome Statute is a must for every practitioner and academic in the field. The relevance of the Commentary is further enhanced by the addition of an annotation of the ICTY and ICTR Statutes, containing the latest developments in the jurisprudence of the ad hoc tribunals. Such jurisprudence is frequently relied upon by participants filling before the ICC and in the judicial decisions by the different Chambers. 
The ICC, together with the ICTY and ICTR, form a single genus, clearly distinguishable from all other bodies in the field of International Criminal Law. The ICC has built and will continue to build on the precedents created by the ad hoc tribunals. 
A compilation of the annotated Statutes of the 3 intertwined Courts, the Larcier Code of International Criminal Law and Procedure provides a valuable practical tool for both practitioners and academics alike. The annotations also include references to the Rules of Procedure and Evidence of the ICC.
