Chapter Summary

The cooperation of States Parties is fundamental to the functionality of the International Criminal Court. Article 93 itemises species of assistance that the requested State must provide at the request of the Court respecting the investigation or prosecution of crimes within the jurisdiction of the Court. Article 94 makes provision for the postponement of the execution of a request for assistance where its execution would interfere with an ongoing investigation or prosecution in the requested State for a crime other than that for which cooperation is sought. The essence of the cooperation regime established by the Statute lies in the imposition of an obligation on the part of States Parties to cooperate with the Court authorities in the investigation and prosecution of crimes within the jurisdiction of the Court.
