Justice Day

Bangladesh : Joint statement for Int’l Justice Day

International Justice Day, or International Criminal Justice Day, has been observed every year on July 17 since 1998, marking the day on which the international community adopted the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC). Odhikar and FIDH have been commemorating International Justice Day for several years, both on their own and as members of the International Coalition for the International Criminal Court (CICC). On this day, the Rome Statute of the ICC was adopted by the international community, with an aim to end impunity for international crimes, namely genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and the crime of aggression.
