Ecuador´s Ambassador in the Netherlands, Miguel Calahorrano, participated in the memorable act of the 10 years of the Assembly of the International Criminal Court, held on November 15th in La Haya. The diplomat emphasized the particular character of the eleventh session of the Assembly of States Parties for commemorating 10 years of the entry into force of the Rome Statute.
“Universality, does not only mean that all States are part of the Court, but that this looks at all latitudes on the planet, and to all of the crimes against humanity that occur at this very moment in the world, beyond political or economic interests, that are often overlooked by shameful realities for humanity, or lead to measure similar situations with different parameters,” said Ambassador Calahorrano.
In addition, among other relevant topics for Ecuador during the plenary, the financing of the Court was addressed, the process for implementing the reforms on the crime of aggression in the year 2017 as agreed in the “Kampala Conference of 2010 “, and finally, the understood complementarity as cooperation between the Court and States Parties to combat impunity and cooperation.
