ICC Registry mission to Slovakia
Technical Event to Enhance Cooperation |
Bratislava | Slovakia | Eastern Europe
On 12 July 2019, a delegation of the Registry of the International Criminal Court (ICC) conducted a mission to Slovakia to meet with representatives of various ministries and discuss practical ways to enhance cooperation with the ICC.
The purpose of the mission was to engage in in-depth discussions with respect to advancing efforts in the area of voluntary cooperation with a view to enabling the signature of the ICC voluntary cooperation agreements. On this occasion, the Slovakian authorities reiterated their full support to the Court and agreed to engage in discussions on this important matter.
The mission was financially supported by the European Commission.
ICC technical events focus on enhancing cooperation at operational levels amongst senior legal officials and other experts in Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Ministries of Justice, Ministries of Interior, as well as regional and international organisations, so as to allow the Court to carry out its mandate in an efficient and effective manner. In this regard, the Court’s technical events are specific in nature, focusing in particular on technical issues such as victim and witness protection, cooperation agreements, investigations, freezing of assets, arrest and surrender, enforcement of sentences, implementing legislation, ratification of the Rome Statute, strategies and policies, and the role of national experts in international criminal justice matters.
