So far, the International Criminal Court

The Court

As of end September 2010, the Office of the Prosecutor had received 8,874 communications about alleged crimes. After initial review, 4,002 of these communications were dismissed as “manifestly outside the jurisdiction of the Court”.


How an investigation is opened

The Prosecutor may open an investigation under three circumstances:
  • when a situation is referred to him by a state party;
  • when a situation is referred to him by the United Nations Security Council, acting to address a threat to international peace and security; or
  • when the Pre-Trial Chamber authorises him to open an investigation on the basis of information received from other sources, such as individuals or non-governmental organisations.

Of the six situations the Prosecutor has investigated to date, three were referred by states parties, two were referred by the Security Council, and in one the Pre-Trial Chamber authorised him to open an investigation based on information received from other sources.
