This report includes the TFV’s assessment of and response to the important recent decision of the International Criminal Court establishing the principles and procedures to be applied to reparations (7 Aug 2012). The reparations regime of the ICC is still uncharted terrain. Indeed, many aspects of the reparations mandate, both legal and practical, will need further interpretation and jurisprudence. For the moment, appeals by Defence and Prosecution teams and by the victims’ representatives are still pending. The TFV intends to prepare to make reparations an immediate reality once all legal matters have been clarified. (See p. 36-38).
