The Rome Statute for the International Criminal Court is an important international treaty, which requires careful considerations from the States Parties in order to be able to comply with its requirements. This is mainly an issue related to the relation between national and international law and depends on the criteria adopted by the national legal systems. Albania is one of the countries, which for the most part belong to the civil law system, the international treaties ratified by the legislative bodies become part of the national legal system, without being subject to any mandatory implementing legislation. According to the Constitution: the Republic of Albania applies international law that is binding upon it.
