Take a Guess: What is the New Number of State Parties to the International Criminal Court?

Moldova became the latest country to ratify the treaty establishing the International Criminal Court.  Moldova ratified the 1998 Rome Statute on Tuesday, bringing the total number of States parties to 114. The treaty will enter into force for Moldova on 1 January 2011.

The ICC is currently investigating events in five countries or regions: Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Sudan’s Darfur region, the Central African Republic (CAR) and Kenya. An individual State or the Security Council can refer cases to the court for investigation.
