Rome Statute   Luxembourg signed on 13 October 1998 and ratified on 8 September 2000, becoming the 19th State Party.
Agreement on Privileges and Immunities Luxembourg signed the APIC on 10 September 2002 and ratified on 1 January 2006.
Bilateral Immunity Agreement Luxembourg has not signed a BIA.
Implementing Legislation Substantive and Cooperation: The national law implementing the Rome statute, including provisions with regard to complementarity and cooperation with the ICC, is currently being drafted. Source: Ministry of Justice. Universal jurisdiction: The general rule remains the principle of territoriality. There are however more and more exceptions to this rule. Universal jurisdiction is applied for the crime of genocide (law of 8 August 1985). Enforcement of ICC sentences: Measures or an agreement allowing the enforcement of ICC sentences in national prisons (art. 103 RS) is not foreseen in Luxembourg for the moment, but could eventually be considered at a later stage. Victims: Our national legislation (law of 12 March 1984) provides for the reparation of victims of criminal offences. If such an offence was committed in a foreign country, reparation can be granted in Luxembourg under certain conditions, such as, for instance, that the victim is not entitled to reparation in the country where the offence was committed and that the victim has its legal and habitual residence in Luxembourg.
Membership Luxembourg is a member of European Union, Like-Minded Country, OSCE, Council of Europe.
