Chapter Summary

The Agreement signed in December 1991 on the establishment of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and the Additional Protocol and Declaration of Alma- Ata have defined the principles on the basis of which the multilateral cooperation is to be established within the Commonwealth of Independent States. On the territory of the CIS member states several methods are used to conduct an effective fight against organized crime from universal international conventions to other bilateral regional instruments. CIS States that have been thinking about ratification of the Rome Statute are today confronted with the need to adopt implementing measures which might precede the ratification process to ensure that national law conforms to the Rome Statute. A basis for this is the inclusion in the national legislation of these states the crimes falling under the ICC jurisdiction: crime of aggression, crimes against humanity, war crimes, genocide.

Keywords: Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS); crime of aggression; crimes against humanity; genocide; Rome Statute; war crimes
