The Czech Republic has fully recognized the International Criminal Court after President Václav Klaus signed on Wednesday into law the treaty on which the court is based. The Czech Republic was the only EU state not to have recognised the international court, which was established in 2003 and handles serious crimes against humanity and war crimes. Both chambers of the Czech Parliament voted to approve the treaty, known as the Rome Statutes, last year. In January, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe criticized the Czech Republic for its failure to ratify the treaty.
