International Justice Day 2017 July 17, 2017 in the World

International Justice Day is celebrated throughout the world on July 17, 2017 as part of an effort to recognise the emerging system of international criminal justice.

It is also referred to as Day of International Criminal Justice or World Day for International Justice. July 17 was chosen because it is the anniversary of the adoption of the Rome Statute, the treaty that created the International Criminal Court (ICC).


On 17 July 1998, the Rome Statute was adopted by a vote of 120 to 7. The seven countries that voted against the treaty were Iraq, Israel, Libya, the People’s Republic of China, Qatar, the United States, and Yemen. Under the Rome Statue, the ICC can only investigate and prosecute in situations where states are unable or unwilling to do so themselves. Thus, the majority of international crimes continue to go unpunished unless and until domestic systems can properly deal with them. Therefore, permanent solutions to impunity must be found at the domestic level.

Each year, people around the world use International Justice Day to host events to promote international criminal justice, especially support for the International Criminal Court. The day has been successful enough to attract international news attention, and for groups to use the day to focus attention on particular issues such as genocide in Darfur, Falun Dafa, and serious crimes of violence against women.

Interesting Books:


Terry Gardiner was a successful businessman having lived and carried out many business interests throughout the Middle-East for over 30 years, with several offices in the region including Iraq itself, establishing an affiliated office in Baghdad in 1998. This was during a period that Blair was complicit with the then American President Bill Clinton already bombing Iraq on a regular basis, resulting in the deaths of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians, many of were women and children.

Probably unknown by the majority of the public, by August 1999, American and British pilots had fired more than 1,100 missiles against 359 targets in Iraq, with bombings.

This bombing campaign was particularly abhorrent given that the Iraqi’s were at the time and had been from 1991 under severe sanctions which itself was to cause thousands of Iraqi deaths, among them a large majority of women and children, these sanctions were only lifted on 22nd May 2003 a good two months after the start of the invasion against a sovereign state.

What is amoral about the bombing during the 1990’s was that the UK and America were not even at war with Iraq, during that period the UK alone had dropped hundreds of tonnes of bombs, with America dropping even more.

The author himself was to be kidnapped in 2004, which will be detailed in the book.

You will read how the aggression and brutality of the coalition force’s have alienated not just the Iraqi people, provoking anger and thirst for revenge across the region, and how what is happening in Syria and Libya can be traced backed to the invasion of Iraq, something that will be detailed in the book with documentary evidence.

​Anyone who was against the alleged illegal invasion of Iraq and the more recent events in Syria and Libya, and now the unthinkable prospect of a third world war should read this book, which will unveil the hypocritical propaganda of both the UK and America, detailing right up to September 2016 how an average of 700 Innocent Iraqi’s are still being killed month on month, yet cynically not being reported by the western media.


Author Terry Gardiner is available for public speaking events and book signings, to talk about his 30 years experience living in Iraq.
