Since the entry into force of the Statute of the International Criminal Court in 2002, the activities of the Court have been fraught with difficulties and its proceedings have not had the scope that was expected when the Statute was adopted. This is shown by the protracted duration of the preliminary examinations, the limited number of finalised trials and the handful of reparation orders issued to date. This situation in due, in particular, to the reluctance of the Major Powers in the international community to become parties to the Statute of the Court and the emphasis placed by the Office of the Prosecutor in putting an end to impunity for those most responsible for the most serious international crimes. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that these circumstances will disappear in the medium term.
