The ICC’s Appeals Chamber (AC) has the authority to review, on appeal, judgments, decisions, orders and the exercise of power by the Pre-Trial and Trial Chambers. The Rome Statute and the Rules of Procedure and Evidence expressly provide that the AC may confirm, reverse or amend matters on appeal, and has the power of remand in Article 81 and Article 83 appeals against decisions of acquittal, conviction or sentence. There is no express power to remand an issue in Article 82 (interlocutory) appeals. This article discusses whether the AC has the power, generally, to remand a matter to Chambers below, thereby not coming to a determination itself. The article concludes by suggesting that the AC has the power of remand, and that it springs from two sources: (1) for appeals generally, the Court’s inherent powers and (2) for Article 81 and Article 83 appeals, the Court’s Statutory powers in Article 83(2). Therefore, the AC, under its inherent jurisdiction, may exercise the power of remand for Article 82 (interlocutory) appeals.
