Germany ratifies crime of aggression amendments
On 3 June 2013, Guido Westerwelle, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Germany deposited his country's instrument of ratification of the Kampala amendments with the Office of Legal Affairs of the United Nations. Germany, which had been instrumental for the inclusion of the Crime of Aggression in the Rome Statute, is the sixth State Party to ratify the amendments. Upon activation of the amendments in 2017, the ICC will be the first international court since the International Military Tribunals in Nuremberg and Tokyo to hold individuals responsible for the crime of aggression. It is by far the largest State to do so yet.
