Katherine Keating

luis In this ONE ON ONE interview, Ocampo explains that in 1998, 120 states decided to end impunity of the most serious crimes of concern to the international community as a whole. The ICC is, in his words, the "first 21st century institution serving the world." Ocampo stresses that the global community must rally behind the court in order to help it achieve its aims. "We need to create a community around the court," he states. "Because the ICC is fighting people in power, of course we create controversies. That's good." Ocampo says that without creating controversy, the court would not be doing its job.
