Rutte commented on the resolution adopted today by the Dutch Parliament to support the creation of a Special International Tribunal for the Crime of Aggression against Ukraine.
The Prime Minister said that this proposal would be considered by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. However, he expects it to be “a long and difficult process.” Rutte considers it important that the work of such a tribunal does not create obstacles to the investigation of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
He also noted that international support for this idea, in his opinion, is still “insufficient.”
On October 20, it was reported that the majority of members of the Dutch Parliament supported the creation of such a special international tribunal.
- October 5 President Vladimir Zelensky stated that the activities of the International Criminal Court should be supplemented by a special tribunal for the crime of Russian aggression against Ukraine.
- On October 16, the foreign ministers of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania issued a joint statement in which they called on the European Union and its partners to help Ukraine create a Special Tribunal.
