The ICC is responsible for prosecuting and ruling on cases involving genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. It is brought in only where a State Party is itself unwilling or unable to prosecute such crimes committed within its own territory or by its own nationals.  > more > more

Lifelong Detention
Untreatable sexual or violent offenders who represent a serious danger to the public are subject to institutionalization for life. They are not entitled to temporary release. Furthermore, discharge from an institution is possible only after the person in question has been examined taking into account the latest scientific findings. These restrictive demands were sanctioned by popular vote in 2004; yet, implementing these regulations has proven difficult, because they run counter to the European Convention on Human Rights.  > more > more
