L’arrêt de la Cour internationale de Justice dans l’affaire des Immunités juridictionnelles de l’Etat (Allemagne c. Italie ; Grèce intervenant)

Abstract : The judgment of 3 February 2012 in the case concerning Jurisdictional Immunities of the State originates in a series of findings by the Italian judicial authorities against Germany for crimes committed by the Nazi occupying forces during the Second World War. Thus called upon todetermine whether the national courts have, in accordance with general international law, the possibility of depriving a foreign state of immunity so not to leave unpunished clear violations ofthe most fundamental international rules, the International Court of Justice set about a painstaking labour of interpreting customary rules before finding against the Italian authorities on the ground that the procedural advantage which states derive from their immunities is not limited by thegravity of the charges against them. The inevitable choices made by the Court in reaching this conclusion raise questions about the part the International Court itself seems to be called on to play in the law-making process.
