Agreement on Privileges and Immunities Bolivia signed the Agreement on Privileges and Immunities on 23 March 2004 and ratified it on January 20 2006.
Bilateral Immunity Agreement Signed BIA on May 19, 2003. Senate ratified the BIA, but the process was stalled at the Chamber of Deputies. The current administration has stated that it has no intention of ratifying the agreement.
Implementing Legislation In early 2012, an ad-hoc commission was set up by the Ministry of Justice in charge of drafting a new Code of Criminal Procedure (CCP). A draft proposal of the CCP includes a provision which mandates Congress to approve the ICC implementing law within a period of 180 days after the enactment of the CCP (including complementarity and cooperation provisions). In the meantime, the Ministry of Justice is working on drafting ICC implementing legislation (set to be enacted through a special ICC implementing law), which takes into account the 2006 proposal prepared by the Ombudsman’s office. This proposal seeks to incorporate crimes and general legal principles of the Rome Statute as well as provisions on cooperation with the ICC within Bolivian domestic legislation. Bolivian law currently includes some general provisions on international judicial cooperation.
