Argument: The ICC is a large and expensive bureaucracy
Gary T. Dempsey. "Reasonable Doubt: The Case Against the Proposed International Criminal Court". CATO Institute. 16 July 1998 - the registrar for the Rwanda tribunal, Agwu Ukiwe Okali, pointed out in a speech before the UN Preparatory Committee on the Establishment of an International Criminal Court: One of the most common misapprehensions about the ICTR [the Rwanda tribunal], and I am sure the same goes for the ICTY [the Yugoslavia tribunal], is as to its size. When people think about the tribunal, they think actually of a court and when they think of a court, they think of a few judges with some support staff--20, 30, maybe 40 people altogether. Nothing prepares them for the actual size of the operation--a staffing strength of over 600 and an annual budget of nearly 60 million dollars. What is the point here? The point is that we are speaking, not of a small cottage operation, but of a large and extensive organization.
