Printed in the Netherlands. 195 The German law on co-operation with the ICC PETER WILKITZKI ∗ Introduction At last we are going to have a permanent International Criminal Court. It is a vision pursued by progressive politicians since the end of the 19th century. This court will enable us to bring people to justice who crush human rights but enjoy protection in their own countries because those countries are not able or willing to prosecute such criminals. Germany is one of the countries which has paved the way for this Court. Because the Federal Government has been so vigorous in driving this world-wide project forward, we want to fully adapt our laws to the international requirements by the time the Court has been set up. With these words, Germany’s Federal Justice Minister, Prof. Dr. Herta Daeubler-Gmelin, presented two pieces of draft legislation to the public on 16 January 2002, the day they were adopted by the Federal Cabinet. This essay discusses one of these pieces: the Law “to implement the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court of 17 July 1998” (RS Implementation Act). 1 The
