The Ministry of Martyrs and Anfal Affairs in the Kurdistan Regional Government called on Iraq to sign the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.

 

Fuad Osman, spokesman for the Ministry of Martyrs and Anfal Affairs, told PUKmedia: The Ministry of Martyrs Affairs calls on Iraq to sign the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court to prevent the recurrence of genocide.

 

He added that Iraq's signing of the Rome Statute will contribute to bringing the perpetrators of crimes of genocide to international justice, especially ISIS terrorists, and the definition of crimes committed against Yazidi brothers on international level.

 

The spokesman for the Ministry of Martyrs Affairs continued: The non-membership of Iraq in the Rome Statute was the main obstacle before the Committee on the genocide of Yazidis to register a lawsuit against ISIS terrorists to the International Criminal Court.

 

He pointed out that the signing of Iraq to the Rome Statute will contribute to enable the Kurdistan Regional Government to issue an international lawsuit to try the perpetrators of Anfal and chemical bombardment crimes of the city of Halabja, Abada, Barzani, Failis and Yazidis.

 

The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (often referred to as the International Criminal Court Statute or the Rome Statute) is the treaty that established the International Criminal Court (ICC). It was adopted at a diplomatic conference in Rome, Italy on 17 July 1998 and it entered into force on 1 July 2002. As of March 2019, 122 states are party to the statute. Among other things, the statute establishes the court's functions, jurisdiction and structure.
