A UNANIMOUS vote of the International Bar Association council has passed a proposal for the establishment of a cross-jurisdictional criminal court.
Put to the council by IBA president J Ross Harper, the motion was passed after the introduction of an amendment to include environmental crimes.
The plan will now be put to the UN, which has in the past supported the idea of an international criminal court.
"The UN has passed several motions throughout the years saying there should be such a court, but nothing has ever happened," says Harper. "We feel that it requires some additional support. On behalf of 167 countries representing 2.5 million lawyers, we hope our support will be meaningful."
