This chapter comments on Article 46 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 46 deals with the removal from office of elected officials of the Court, that is, the judges, the Prosecutor and Registrar, and the Deputy Prosecutors and Deputy Registrar. There are two grounds for removal from office. An official may be removed from office where he or she is ‘found to have committed serious misconduct or a serious breach of his or her duties under this Statute, as provided for in the Rules of Procedure and Evidence’, or if he or she ‘is unable to exercise the functions required by this Statute’.
