US exempted

Cambodia signed a bilateral agreement on June 27 that prohibits the extradition of

US citizens to the International Criminal Court (ICC) if they are charged with war

crimes or crimes against humanity. The Article 98 deal prevents Americans in Cambodia

and Cambodians in the US from being extradited to the ICC. The ICC, based in the

Netherlands' Hague, may only intervene when a country is unable to carry out a trial

or lacks the political will to do so. It was inaugurated on March 12.
