The Coalition for the ICC delivered a statement during the ASP22 closing session on 14 December 2023. The statement, delivered by Virginie Amato (CICC Advocacy Director), underscored the crucial role of civil society in the Rome Statute system, calling on the Assembly to continue its work defending and providing space for human rights defenders and civil society facing threats for their work on international justice next year, with genuine and accessible consultations with those most concerned. The Coalition expressed its regret that the Assembly again failed to set an annual ICC budget that reflects the real and sustained investment needed to support the Court’s global mandate and urged States to reframe the annual budget discussions toward providing the Court adequate and sustainable resources. The Coalition further welcomed the adoption of a permanent due diligence or vetting process for ICC elected officials, and thanked the outgoing ASP leadership and Bureau, and ICC President Hofmański, and congratulated the incoming leadership.
