Special procedures - Article 19

The COI report is published and actions are required

The government concerned may accept the recommendations of the COI or propose referral of the complaint to the ICJ.

Both the complainant government and the government against which the complaint has been lodged may propose to refer the complaint to the ICJ.

No government has ever referred a complaint investigated by a COI to the ICJ. Ultimately and at different paces, all governments against which complaints have been made have moved to implement recommendations.
