This chapter comments on Article 114 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 114 states that the expenses of the Court and the Assembly of States Parties, including its Bureau and subsidiary bodies, shall be paid from the funds of the Court. Article 114 has been described as an attempt to avoid a practice resulting from the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea whereby the Secretary-General pays for meetings of States Parties and other bodies out of the general budget. Thus, should the Secretary-General host meetings, any expenses incurred, for example for Secretariat services, must be paid by the Court, not the United Nations.
