Practice Relating to Rule 160. Statutes of Limitation
In 1967, during a debate in the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly on the question of the punishment of war criminals and of persons who have committed crimes against humanity, India stated that its legislation did not provide for statutory limitation in the case of grave breaches of the 1949 Geneva Conventions and that:
It was in the light of that legislation that her delegation had voted in the [UN] Commission on Human Rights and the Economic and Social Council in favour of the resolution requesting the principle that there would be no period of limitation for war crimes and crimes against humanity … She would like to reiterate her delegation’s view that since that principle was not yet universally recognized the elaboration of an international convention on the matter would help to promote uniformity in national legislations.
