ABSTRACT
The ability of the Prosecutor to exercise discretion in initiating criminal investigations and prosecutions has been an integral part of international criminal courts. In the International Criminal Court (ICC), however, oversight by the judiciary and the Security Council, as well as the need to maintain active state cooperation, challenge the ability of the Prosecutor to independently exercise this discretion.
