There are eleven accompanying Resolutions with the Seville Agreement

Resolution 5 -- International Criminal Court

The Council of Delegates,

deeply alarmed by the large-scale and continuing violations of international humanitarian law, both in international and in non-international armed conflicts,

recalling the obligation of States to repress violations of international humanitarian law and of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide,

recalling also resolution 2 of the 26th International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, which urges States to increase international efforts to permanently establish an international criminal court,

considering the efforts already undertaken to that end, and, in particular, the planning of an international diplomatic conference in Rome in 1998, to set up such an international criminal court,

considering also the efforts of the ICRC to further the establishment of an effective and impartial international criminal court,

1. invites National Societies to support all these efforts and to promote the creation of such a court, while at the same time encouraging States' to comply with their existing obligation under international humanitarian law to repress violations of this law and of the Convention relating to the crime of genocide;
2. requests the ICRC, in consultation with the International Federation, to follow developments closely, to actively keep National Societies informed, and to report to the 1999 meeting of the Council of Delegates on progress made in establishing an international criminal court.
