Grenada Joins International Criminal Court, One of 12 CARICOM Members


By the Caribbean Journal staff

The government of Grenada has joined the International Criminal Court, with the court’s Rome Statute set to enter into force in Grenada on Aug. 1. The decision follows the CARICOM seminar on the ICC held in Port of Spain, Trinidad, where Ambassador Christian Wenaweser, president of the Assembly of States Parties, spoke to Caribbean leaders about ways to enhance implementation of the statute in the region. There are now 12 CARICOM members that are parties to the Rome Statute.
