The International Criminal Court (ICC) is the only independent and permanent court which deals with the most serious crimes committed by people, which are genocide, crime of aggression, war crimes and crimes against humanity. The ICCs based on the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and it has 110 countries joined so far. The ICC investigates crimes which are not investigated by national judicial systems or if they are not properly investigated, that is what jurisprudence calls, last resort character. The main goal of the ICC is to end the impunity of perpetrators who are accused with the most serious crimes under the governance of the Rome Statute. The International Criminal Court found its roots in the early 15th century, it was not until the late 19th century that the understanding of international criminal law emerged in the form of written rules for military conflicts.
