Göran Sluiter and Kate Mackintosh have submitted their amicus curiae observations to the ICC concerning the Afghanistan situation. They argue that the pre-trial chamber's decision is not consistent with internationally recognized human rights and violates art. 21(3) of the statute.

The observations can be accessed on https://www.icc-cpi.int/CourtRecords/CR2019_07006.PDF
