NEWS: Parliamentarians pledge ratification of the Kampala Amendments

Parliamentarians pledge ratification of the Kampala Amendments: At an event hosted by Liechtenstein, Parliamentarians for Global Action (PGA) and the Global Institute for the Prevention of Aggression, several members of parliament pledged to work to support the ratification of the Kampala Amendments within their own countries. Parliamentarians were able to hear a video message from former Nuremberg Prosecutor Benjamin Ferencz, and listen to remarks by Albert Frick (President, Parliamentarians for Global Action), Felipe Michelini (former Member of Parliament, Uruguay) and Stefan Barriga (Deputy Permanent Representative of Liechtenstein to the UN). Speakers of the Parliaments of Madagascar and Senegal then offered commentaries, in which they underscored the importance of the Kampala Amendments and pledged to facilitate their ratification. After an interesting question-and-answer session, Mark Pritchard (Member of the UK House of Commons, Rapporteur of PGA) and Minou Tavarez Mirabal (Member of the Parliament of the Dominican Republic and President of PGA) gave concluding remarks.
