The Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court will hold its seventh session at the World Forum Convention Center in The Hague, The Netherlands, from 14 to 22 November 2008.
All journalists wishing to cover the session and related events must submit an official letter of assignment by fax to +31 (0)70 381 54 76 and the completed accreditation form (English or French) to the following e-mail address: [email protected].
The application period for accreditation starts on Monday 10 November and closes on Monday 17 November at 16:00 hours CET. Journalists already accredited with the International Criminal Court do not need to submit the accreditation form nor the letter, but are kindly requested to confirm their participation via e-mail.
Press badges will be issued and handed out at the World Forum to journalists that have received accreditation upon presentation of a passport or a valid ID with photo. No admittance will be allowed to any of the scheduled events without prior accreditation.
Please note that there will be no press facilities available at the World Forum Convention Center.
N.B. The Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court does not deal with visa issues. Members of the media are responsible for obtaining an appropriate visa entry into The Netherlands if needed. Visa may be obtained from a diplomatic or consular mission of The Netherlands in the country of residence. In the case of a country where The Netherlands does not have a consular mission, journalists may obtain a visa from the mission of another Schengen country that is responsible for issuing visas on behalf of The Netherlands.
For additional information on accreditation please contact Ms. Fatma Waheb Wassie at +31 70 515 9806 (office) or +31 646 168 626 (mobile).
