This chapter outlines the various legal remedies available in modern international criminal proceedings. The appeal is the ordinary remedy against a first instance judgment of acquittal or conviction with a view to correcting possible errors of fact and law (‘final appeal’); it can also be lodged against other decisions at the pre-trial or trial stage (‘interlocutory appeal’). In contrast to the appeal, the revision is an extraordinary remedy against a final judgment of conviction or sentence. In addition, there are other remedies with regard to prosecutorial investigation or prosecution decisions, procedural rights’ violations, and administrative decisions.
