Argentina ratified the International Criminal Court (ICC) Statute in November 2000 and adopted an Implementation Law in December 2006. The Law introduces into domestic legislation the crimes falling under ICC jurisdiction by means of renvoi to the Statute. Such procedure avoids the risk of a unilateral definition of the crimes. In addition, the Law provides for a range of penalties including incarceration. Regrettably penalties envisaging restitution, reparation or rehabilitation of the victim are not provided for in the Law. In terms of cooperation with the ICC, the Law establishes mechanisms for an open and efficient relationship with the Court in case of arrests and surrender of persons, as well as requests for assistance and preliminary rulings.
