Chapter Summary

In case the Court decides that reparations proceedings shall be conducted, they only take place after the Court has found an individual guilty of committing a crime under its jurisdiction. Before the Court makes a decision on reparations, reparations are discussed at an additional hearing or hearings. Victims cannot initiate such reparations hearings, and the legal representatives of victims that have applied for reparations only have the power to postpone such a hearing. However, the issue of reparations may be raised by victims or victims' representatives participating in the proceedings already in the investigative or trial stage. The ICC's legal instruments envision that regularly, the reparations proceedings are triggered by requests for reparations filed with the Court by, or on behalf of, victims. The standard forms for reparations which have been approved by the Court's Presidency, lay down further requirements.
