NEWS: Switzerland ratifies Kampala Amendments as the 24th State

Switzerland ratifies Kampala Amendments as the 24th State: On 10 September 2015, Jürg Lauber, Permanent Representative of the Switzerland to the UN, deposited his country’s instrument of ratification of the Kampala Amendments. Switzerland was a key player in the negotiations leading up to the Kampala conference in 2010 and at the conference itself. Switzerland helped bridge gaps and thus ensured the successful adoption of the compromise. With 24 ratifications, we are getting closer to achieving the milestone of 30 ratifications in the near future.
