President of the United States, Joe Biden, has commented on the recent arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Court against Putin for his alleged war of aggression against Ukraine. However, the United States is not a member of this body of international justice, and the ICC does not have jurisdiction over war crimes committed by countries like the US, Russia, China, India or Israel who have not ratified the Rome Statute. Marieke De Hoon, an expert in International Law, has remarked that the US has always been reluctant to create a supranational court with jurisdiction over its nationals. Moscow has not ratified the Statute either, and has dismissed the arrest warrant as “legally void”. The ICC’s role in prosecuting war crimes in Ukraine will be debated in London on Monday.
