ICC Chooses New President and Vice-Presidents

ICC President Judge Silvia Fernández de Gurmendi

On 11 March 2015, the judges of the International Criminal Court elected Judge Silvia Fernández de Gurmendi of Argentina as President of the Court, Judge Joyce Aluoch of Kenya and Judge Kuniko Ozaki of Japan as First and Second Vice-Presidents. They will serve for a three-year term.

This marks the first time in the history of the Court that the entire Presidency has been female, which has been hailed as an important step for gender equity in the administration of international justice.
