St. Lucia Ratifies Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court
Fresh on the heals of a ratification by the island nation of Seychelles, the Caribbean island nation of Saint Lucia has become the 113th nation to ratify the Rome Statute establishing the International Criminal Court.
The Court welcomed Saint Lucia’s decision, calling it “a new sign of the international community’s commitment to put an end to impunity for the perpetrators of the most serious crimes that deeply shock the conscience of humanity.” The Statute will enter into force on 1 November for Saint Lucia, whose move comes just over a week after Seychelles ratified the pact.
