Bangladesh elected for next 2 years

UNB, Dhaka

Bangladesh has been elected member of the International Criminal Court (ICC) Bureau of Assembly for the next two years (2019-2020). The unanimous decision was made at the seventeenth session of the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute at The Hague, the Netherlands. The Assembly began on December 5 and will end on December 12. A total of 123 countries are States Parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC). The ICC Bureau of Assembly consists of a President, two Vice-Presidents and 18 members elected by the Assembly.

Bangladesh for the first time is going to play its role as a member of the Bureau since Bangladesh's journey with the ICC as a member state, said the Foreign Ministry yesterday.

Bangladesh, South Korea and Japan have been elected for 2019 while Bangladesh, South Korea and Palestine for 2020 as members from the Asia-Pacific region.

The Bureau has a representative character, taking into account, in particular, equitable geographical distribution and the adequate representation of the principal legal systems of the world.
