Monica Feria-Tinta appointed to practice before the International Criminal Court

This is an archived article, and some links may not work. Contact us if you have any questions.

 

Monica Feria-Tinta has been appointed to the List of Assistants to Counsel of the International Criminal Court (ICC). Those admitted to this List, under Regulation 124 of the Regulations of the ICC Registry, are persons eligible to be chosen by lead defence counsel or lead representative of victims to assist them in the representation of cases before the International Criminal Court, in The Hague.

The International Criminal Court has a mandate to prosecute and punish persons responsible for the most serious crimes of concern to the international community such as genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and as of 17 July 2018, also crimes of aggression. In so doing, the ICC's proceedings follow the highest standards of due process and procedural fairness. The Rome Statute guarantees victims, accused persons and under certain conditions suspects, the right to be assisted by counsel.  

Monica's appointment comes at a time of important developments concerning the ICC. On 15 December, the Court delivered a landmark decision on collective reparations for USD 10,000,000 to victims of war crimes in the Lubanga case. On the same date, the Assembly of State parties to the ICC Rome Statute have activated the ICC's jurisdiction over the crime of aggression.

Among other cases, the ICC is currently carrying out a preliminary examination concerning Iraq/UK, focusing on alleged crimes committed by United Kingdom nationals in the context of the Iraq conflict and occupation from 2003 to 2008. It is also conducting preliminary examinations concerning Colombia, Afghanistan, Guinea, Ukraine and others.

Monica acted as legal adviser to a State delegation during the negotiations of the Rome Statute which established the ICC. She has particular expertise in international criminal law, international human rights law, the use of force (ius ad bellum) and the laws of war. In 2007 she was awarded the Gruber Justice Prize for her work leading a case of crimes against humanity which led to the prosecution of a former Head of State. She has advised on issues concerning genocide in inter-state claims and is currently acting as lead counsel on a claim on crimes against humanity before a UN treaty-based organ.
