ABSTRACT
The article criticizes the requirement of the United Nations Security Council to make a determination of an act of aggression before the International Criminal Court can have jurisdiction over the crime. The author asserts that the determination by the Security Council will allow for the continued dominance by the powerful veto states of the council, and will give the Security Council a quasi-judicial role for which it was not designed nor capable of because of its political nature and unbalanced representation.
