A statute or any codified law can be considered to be the bible of its jurisdiction. However, what happens where a verse in the bible is not clear? It is prone to varied interpretations by the religious practitioners. The same is the occurrence in the interpretation of a Statute. The Rome Statute was enacted to provide for the law related to crimes in the international regime. The absence of clarity in the legal provision leads to its various interpretations in the cases heard at the International Criminal Court.. Such is the case in Article 7 of the Rome Statute that provides for the crimes against humanity.
