The US's Turbulent Relationship with the ICC: A History
The turbulent relationship between the US and the International Criminal Court (ICC) further exacerbated in the summer of 2020, after Donald Trump authorised sanctions against the ICC officials involved in investigations into possible war crimes committed by the US troops or those of its allies.
Although, the Clinton administration signed the Rome Statute in 2000, W. Bush in 2002 had the US unsigned the Statute and signed into the American Service-Members’ Protection Act to protect US nationals from the ICC’s reach, even by invading The Hague. After a positive approach toward the forum during the Obama administration, the US and the ICC relations again soured since the election of Trump. The Iranian Centre for International Criminal Law (ICICL) would discuss the hostile campaign of the US against the ICC with Prof. Kevin Heller who signed in June 2020 a joint statement made by a group of legal scholars against the imposition of the US sanctions on the ICC officials.
