Since its inception 12 years ago and having spent more than $1 billion, the court has had only two convictions so far.

    Since its inception the International Criminal Court has come under criticism for failing to prosecute most of those it has charged.

    Since it came into force 12 years ago, the ICC has cost more than $1-bn dollars, and of the 21 cases brought before the court, only two have been successfully prosecuted.
