    “Twenty years after the adoption of the Rome Statute, Poland reaffirms its support for the International Criminal Court” – said Mr. Michał Węckowicz of the Legal and Treaty Department of Poland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs during a United Nations General Assembly debate on the report of the Court.


    The debate provided an opportunity to comment on the ICC’s last year’s activity, described in the said report presented by the Court’s President, judge Chile Eboe-Osuji. Following his address, several dozen representatives of states and groups of states took the floor.


    In his statement the representative of Poland encouraged to further increase the efficiency of the Court. He pointed to the need for cooperation and support for the ICC on behalf of the states, including in the execution of arrest warrants issued by the Court. He also expressed hope for a wider ratification of the Kampala Amendments to the Rome Statute of the ICC and reiterated Poland’s support for the Court as well as the Statute’s universalization.
