Summary
The purpose of this law is to implement the provisions of the Rome Statute and to regulate co-operation and assistance between the State of Argentina and the International Criminal Court (ICC). It sets out the punishment, at the national level, for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, as well as for offences against the administration of justice of the ICC. Crimes committed on Argentine territory or in areas under its jurisdiction, and those committed by state agents abroad in the exercise of their functions, fall within the scope of the law. So do crimes committed by Argentina's nationals outside Argentina's territory or by persons domiciled in Argentina. Under this law there are no statutory limitations for the core crimes defined under the Rome Statute.
