Humanity has witnessed various crimes over the passing ages. Such crimes are described as brutal and fierce. They resulted in severe calamities and various disasters. The internal laws of countries did not incriminate such punishable acts because such acts exceed the domain and boundaries of one state whether regarding the offenders (criminals) or the place of crime. This forced the international society to stand together to incriminate such acts.

And this also made the international society establish international courts to view such type of crimes. The international society set some international principles which it tried to make stronger but such trials were met with many obstacles by some countries which have certain interests regarding allowing such crimes and having no punishment for them.

Due to the continuation of these crimes and causing various harms to the majority of countries in the world, the international society stood together to face these obstacles and establish international criminal judiciary. Actually, the International Criminal Court was established as per Rome Statute which exclusively decides the international crimes to be viewed by the concerned permanent International Criminal Court.

Again, some countries tried to prevent the effectiveness of this court through concluding bilateral agreements with other countries and amending their internal legislations. But the international society possessed strong desire and managed to make the International Criminal Court enforceable.

In this book, we focused our attention on studying the development of international judiciary after the armed disputes and in particular after the World War I because they are considered as the basis of the international criminal law rules. This is done in the first part.

We also made a complete study of the International Criminal Court regarding developments of its stages of foundation,regulations, formation, international jurisdiction, procedural qualitative and objective domain and the different circuits that constitute the court. In addition to the governing law, we also referred to the supplemental jurisdiction that was mentioned in the Statute of the International Criminal Court between the national and international legislations.

We also mentioned the detailed procedures, the guarantees of litigation before the ICC as well as other matters. Then we tackled the procedures of issuing rulings, methods of objections to these rulings and how to carry out the penalty issued by this court, place of enforcing the penalty and the international integral domain in enforcing the penalty issued against the accused.
