Chapter Summary

The author considers the complementary relationship between national judicial systems and the International Criminal Court (ICC). He considers the legislation in place in Canada and Britain to ensure that the crimes under the ICC's jurisdiction are prosecuted nationally. The author finally considers that, if ever, the justice systems in either state might be found wanting, the International Criminal Court would be required to step into the breach. The objective of this discussion is to determine when, if ever, individuals who have been (or are being) dealt with under the British or the Canadian justice systems might end up before the ICC. In order for the ICC to be successful, it must have a role in overseeing the implementation of criminal justice in all countries, not merely those countries that are developing, transitional or led by tyrants.
