Chapter Summary

Articles 62 to 76 of the Rome Statute outline the role of the International Criminal Court (ICC) during the trial as well as the basic rights and general principles applicable throughout the course of the trial. In their entirety, they reflect a serious effort to provide a trial procedure that balances between prosecution of indicted persons, the rights of the victims and the rights of the accused to a fair trial. The Trial Chamber has the power to rule on the admissibility or relevance of evidence, and take all necessary steps to maintain order during the hearing. In principle, trials at the International Criminal Court are to be held in public. It is considered a right of the accused to have a public trial in order to ensure that justice is seen to be done.
