This chapter comments on Article 57 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 57 sets out the functions and powers of the Pre-Trial Chamber. Article 39 of the Rome Statute established the existence of the Pre-Trial Chamber. It required the creation of a Pre-Trial Division of not less than six judges, and was to be composed predominantly of judges with criminal trial experience. The Pre-Trial Chamber is ‘responsible for any matter, request or information arising out of the situation assigned to it’, subject to the authority of the President of the Pre-Trial Division to assign a matter, request, or information to another Pre-Trial Chamber ‘in the interests of the administration of justice’.
