This chapter comments on Article 34 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 34 consists of four paragraphs that list the principal organs of the Court. It has no other function than to identify the four organs. The Court consists of the following organs: (a) a Presidency; (b) an Appeals Chamber, Trial Chambers and [a Pre-Trial Chamber] [Pre-Trial Chambers]; (c) the Office of the Prosecutor; and (d) a Registry. Each organ has its own provision, to which reference should be made. The expression ‘organs of the Court’ is used in only one other provision of the Statute, article 45(4), concerning the employment of gratis personnel.
