Ukraine recognized jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court on War Crimes

At September 8 2015 Ukraine officially accepted jurisdiction of the International Crime Court (ICC) over alleged crimes committed since 20-2-2014, such as MH17.

Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin delivered a statement to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The 5 member states of the Joint Investigation Team are working on creating a tribunal to prosecute those responsible for the downing of MH17.

A United Nations tribunal was vetoed by Russia in July 2015. Alternatives are a court case on Malaysian law, a hybrid court case or bring the court case to the ICC.

Malaysian Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai expressed these three options in a recent interview.

In August Ukraine officials talked about a hybrid tribunal.

  1. Ukraine is in a hurry to get some sort of international court established. Perhaps the odds of achieving this goal are higher now than they will be after the final DSB report is made public.

    Today they had discussions with the Dutch concerning Pavlo Klimkin’s proposals for “moving forward” after the Russian veto in the UNSC.

    None of these developments appear to be of the slightest interest to the western media.
