This chapter comments on Article 88 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 88 requires States Parties to ensure that there are procedures available under their national law for all of the forms of cooperation. It sets out an obligation of result and not one of conduct. States should review the relevant provisions of their law in order to ensure that they are in a position to comply with requests from the Court for cooperation. They are required to have in place procedures that ‘facilitate timely compliance with requests for assistance’. If they cannot comply with a request because of lacunae or incompatibilities in their national legal systems, they will be in breach of the Rome Statute.
