Chapter Summary

This final chapter does deal not with the ICC reparations function in the narrow sense, but with the potential complementary mechanism provided by the Trust Fund. The Trust Fund for Victims was set up "for the benefit of victims of crimes within the jurisdiction of the Court, and of the families of such victims". Its role is not limited to acting as a complementary organ of the Court by implementing the Court's reparation orders. It has a broader role and can, with its own resources received under Rule 98, finance measures other than reparations which are beneficial to victims and their families. The broader mandate of the Trust Fund allows it potentially to balance, first, injustices that might flow from the possibly narrow scope of beneficiaries of ICC reparation orders. Secondly, it might be in a position to address urgent needs of victims that predate the conviction of an offender.
