After a week fraught with delays, confusion and tedious rounds of balloting, on Friday evening the ASP was finally able to complete the election of six judges for the ICC:

CARMONA, Anthony Thomas AquinasTrinidad and Tobago
DEFENSOR-SANTIAGO, MiriamPhilippines

EBOE-OSUJI, ChileNigeria
FREMR, Robert  Czech Republic
HERRERA CARBUCCIA, Olga Venecia Dominican Republic
MORRISON, Howard, United Kingdom

The ASP began its consideration of the omnibus resolution that will pass at the end of the session, as well as the adoption on the 2012 budget for the Court, both of which are controversial and will require considerable negotiation among states. AMICC will continues to report on these developments next Monday-Wednesday from our blog and on Twitter @USfortheICC.
