World Day For International Day of Justice otherwise known as International Justice Day or Day of International Criminal Justice is a day marked for the recognition of the efforts of the International Criminal Court (ICC)
On July 17, 1998, a conference of 160 states established a treaty that is known today as the Rome Statute, which is The founding factor of The International Criminal Court.
The four core international crimes that the court deals with are genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and crime of aggression.
These crimes can only be investigated and prosecuted if the countries involved were incapable or unwilling to handle the situation themselves.
International Justice Day seeks to unite all those who wish to support justice and promote victim’s rights and also help prevent crimes that threaten the peace and security of the world.
