Implementing Legislation Benin has draft legislation implementing both complementarity and cooperation obligations. However, the President has sought the opinion of the Constitutional Court regarding the constitutionality of the law. The draft is currently being reviewed by the Constitutional Court for improvements and amendments. During a seminar in March 2008, organized jointly by the ICRC and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Benin, the Secretary-General of the government made a commitment to facilitate the process of incorporating the input given by the National Codification Commission into the initial draft bill. CICC members are preparing an analysis, including the input from the National Codification Commission, to present to the government.

The draft is available on Amnesty International website: L\'Avant projet de mise en œuvre du statut de la Cour Pénale Internationale au Bénin
