President Silvia Fernández de Gurmendi of the International Criminal Court(ICC) visited the Supreme Court and paid a courtesy call on the Chief Justice YANG Sung-tae.
President Fernández de Gurmendi had a meeting with Chief Justice Yang on the sidelines of the 8th High-Level Regional Cooperation Seminar held in Seoul. The meeting between Chief Justice Yang and President Fernández de Gurmendi is the second of its kind after their first meeting took place in the Hague during Chief Justice Yang’s visit to the ICC in the Netherlands in 2015.
Currently, Judge CHUNG Chang-ho of Gwangju District Court of the Republic of Korea is working as a Judge of the ICC since March 11, 2015. Former President SONG Sang-hyun of the ICC was elected to the first ever bench of the ICC judges in February 2003. He was elected President of the ICC in 2009 and served on the Appeals Division as the President of the ICC until his term came to an end in March 2015.
We expect more active participation of the Korean judiciary in the international arena and hope for further enhanced exchanges between the Korean judiciary and the ICC.
