Fiji’s illegal Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum, has travelled all the way to the Ugandan capital, Kampala, to attend a review conference of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
He must have got a terrible fright of his life when the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon, told the gathering that International Criminal Court (ICC) has forced governments to alter their behaviour in the eight years of its existence.
Ban Ki-moon told a summit in Uganda discussing the Hague-based court that it had curtailed impunity and had broken new ground on victims' rights.
Delegates from more than 100 countries are attending the meeting, to take stock of the ICC's achievements and push forward proposals for strengthening its rules.
"Few would have believed then that this court would spring so vigorously into life, fully operational, investigating and prosecuting war crimes and crimes against humanity,"
Ban told the delegates.
"In this new age of accountability, those who commit the worst of human crimes will be held responsible."
Ban said the time had passed when the world faced a choice between peace and justice - now states had to pursue them hand-in-hand.
However, the court's chief prosecutor, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, said there had been a "legal revolution" since the Rome Statute - the international treaty that created the court.
He said it had affected the armed forces, governments and judges in many countries, citing the Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea and Colombia.
We hope all those who have suffered at the hands of the present regime will sent their cases to Ocampo at the ICC.
