This chapter comments on Article 15ter of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 15ter is part of a package of amendments adopted at the Kampala Review Conference in 2010. Under article 13(b), the Security Council may trigger the jurisdiction of the Court with respect ‘over the crime of aggression’. Article 13(b) entitles the Security Council to trigger the Court's jurisdiction, pursuant to Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations. Article 15ter(1) makes clear that the Security Council may only trigger jurisdiction over the crime of aggression in accordance with the provisions of article 15ter. Essentially, this is about the temporal limits of the exercise of jurisdiction over the crime of aggression.
