The International Criminal Court (the 'ICC')1 has jurisdiction, inter alia, in respect of war crimes2 and this is the case in particular when these are committed as part of a plan or policy or as part of a large-scale commission of such crimes3. For the purpose of the Statute establishing the court, 'war crimes' includes other serious violations of the laws and customs applicable in international armed conflict, within the established framework of international law, including intentionally directing attacks against buildings dedicated to religion, education, art, science or charitable purposes, and historic monuments, provided they are not military objectives4.
