The Czech Republic is the only European Union member state not to have ratified the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Although the Czech Republic is a like-minded state and the government can generally be said to support the ratification, there are several reasons why this has not yet happened. This paper elucidates these reasons. It gives an overview of the relevant provisions of Czech constitutional law as well as both material and procedural criminal law and shows current Czech procedures regarding international cooperation. In this evaluation, it is highlighted that most existing provisions or those currently undergoing revision would soon enable the Czech Republic to ratify and implement the Rome Statute. The reasons why this has not yet happened are shown to be not as much legal as they are political.
