On March 8, 2018, the ICC Appeals Chamber issued its first judgment dealing with offences against the administration of justice under Article 70 of its Statute. Unsurprisingly, the Appeals Chamber made a number of important findings on the elements of various offences falling into this category, but also made a number of interesting, controversial and far-reaching findings concerning the ICC’s procedural framework, and in particular the collection and admission of evidence at trial. In doing so, the Appeals Chamber also touched on fundamental legal issues, such as the application of international human rights and its power to consider domestic law. The commentary will consider the most interesting and significant findings made by the Appeals Chamber, and will seek to show that the lack of attention traditionally given to judgments dealing with offences other than the “core” crimes is misguided, given the wealth of important and generally applicable findings they can contain.
