On 30 April, members of the Centre made verbal presentations, in support of written submissions, to Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, on two amendments to the Rome Statute on international crimes and the ICC.
- On criminalising the use of certain weapons (submission of 7 February); and
- On the use of starvation as a means of warfare (submission of 25 March).
In both submissions, the Centre conveyed the conclusions of its research: that while the proposed amendments comprised a strengthening of international criminal law, it would be consistent with NZ policy to incorporate also the leadership crime of aggression, as agreed at the Kampala Conference in 2010.
