Buschmann mentioned that, within the occasion of Putin’s arrival, the Worldwide Prison Courtroom will shortly flip to Interpol and the contracting states and demand the execution of the warrant.
“Then Germany will likely be obliged to arrest President Putin if he enters German territory and hand him over to the Worldwide Prison Courtroom,” the minister mentioned.
In contrast to nationwide regulation enforcement companies, the ICC may take motion towards heads of state, added Buschmann.
Earlier, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz welcomed the ICC’s resolution and mentioned that the warrant for Putin’s arrest reveals that nobody is above the regulation.
On 17 March, Pre-Trial Chamber II of the Worldwide Prison Courtroom issued arrest warrants for Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and Maria Olekseevna Lvova-Belova, Russian Presidential Commissioner for Kids’s Affairs.
