This chapter comments on Article 71 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 71 deals with issues of misconduct or ‘contempt of court’. The Court may sanction persons present before it who commit misconduct, including disruption of its proceedings or deliberate refusal to comply with its directions. The available sanctions range from ordering a person to leave or be removed from the Court, to an interdiction of attendance at the proceedings, imposition of a fine and, in the case of an official of the Court, defence counsel, or a legal representative of victims, an interdiction from exercising the person's functions before the Court.
