Eric Posner: “The Absurd International Criminal Court: After 10 years and hundreds of millions of dollars, it has completed precisely one trial.”

    Eric Posner at the Wall Street Journal (via Google): The court has been a failure. Although it has a staff of more than 700 and an annual budget in excess of $100 million, the ICC has so far completed precisely one trial—that of Thomas Lubanga, a commander in the civil war in Congo. It took three years and ended with a conviction on March 14, 2012. The appeals have not begun. A few other trials are ongoing or set to begin.
