Informal Sector Service Centre (INSEC) has urged the Government of Nepal to ratify the Rome Statute.
INSEC urged for this in a statement commemorating July 17 the day the Rome Statute was passed for the establishment of the International Criminal Court.
As mentioned in the statement- ‘INSEC urges for an end to impunity and asks for justice for the victims.’ The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court was established for ratification on July 17, 1998. This statute has been ratified by 123 nations of the world. Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and the Maldives from South Asia along with nineteen countries of Asia, have joined the Rome Statute.

‘The International Criminal Court established under the Rome Statute holds those responsible for serious crimes like war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity defined by the international law and ensures justice for victims.’- mentioned in the statement.
INSEC has also requested the government to be assured about the fact that the establishment of the International Criminal Court does not interfere or reduce the area of jurisdiction of the national court.
