States parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court

“On 21 January 2009, the Palestinian National Authority formally accepted the jurisdiction of the Court.[7] On 3 April 2012, the ICC Prosecutor declared himself unable to determine that Palestine is a “state” for the purposes of the Rome Statute and referred such decision to the United Nations.[8] On 29 November 2012, the United Nations General Assembly voted in favour of recognising Palestine as a non-member observer state.[9]”

“The Court can automatically exercise jurisdiction over crimes committed on the territory of a State Party or by a national of a State Party. States parties must co-operate with the Court, including surrendering suspects when requested to do so by the Court.”

Here’s the rub: The Holy See is a UN non-member observer state, just like Palestine. But has it agreed to the “Rome Statue”?

Netherlands Trivia: It’s just sex....

The Netherlands is one of the most secular countries in Western Europe, with only 39% being religiously affiliated (31% for those aged under 35), and fewer than 20% visiting church regularly.[2]

In 2010 the Dutch population was made up of 16,615,000 people. Among these 24.6% (4.1 million) were Roman Catholics, 14.8% (2.5 million) were Protestants (of these 2.25 million or 13.5% were Reformed and Lutherans, 230,000 or 1.3% were other Protestants), 0.7% (130,000) were other Christians, Orthodox, Jehovah’s Witnesses and others), 5.5% (907,000) were Muslims, 1.0% (170,000) were Buddhists, 0.9% (150,000) were Hindus. 8,527,000 people or 51.3% of the population were mostly non religious, and 1.2% were followers of other religions.

The Netherlands is known for its liberal policies on matters such as sexual orientation. The public widely supports tolerance and equal rights for LGBT people,.[1] As of October 2011, while 90% of ethnic Dutch people in the Netherlands view homosexuality as moral, only 30% of Turks and 25% Moroccans share this opinion.[2] Hindus of Indian origin are reported to be in line with ethnic Dutch in terms of acceptance.[3]
