Money to start the trial in 2018 has already been allocated.

The international criminal court has budgeted 2018 the resources to investigate the Russian-Georgian war of 2008. This writes Georgia Online, citing an interview to the press-speaker of the ICC Fadi El Abdallah.

“The Assembly of member countries of the ICC are responsible for ensuring that the court possessed sufficient financial resources in the framework of its mandate. All member countries make a financial contribution to the ICC’s budget, which includes the mobilization of resources needed to continue the investigation of the situation of Georgia. The court prepares the budget in 2018, providing for the continuation of the investigation and will cooperate with the Assembly for the approval of the budget in December,” – said in an interview.

The international court of justice noted that in an ongoing investigation of the August war of 2008, the office of the Prosecutor is guided by fundamental and rigorous principles of independence, impartiality and objectivity.

The ICC also suggested that the members of the Rome Statute, which financed the investigation by the International criminal court can reduce the budget for the investigation of war crimes in different regions.

Experts attribute this, among other things, with the growth of Russian influence in member countries of the Rome Statute.

We will remind, on 8 August 2008 armed conflict began between Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Russia, on the one hand, and Georgia on the other.
