Mr. Moreno Ocampo's experience includes having led the team of prosecutors that analyzed 10,000 complaints of human rights abuses and proceeded with 700 cases of alleged kidnapping, torture, and "disappearances" against Argentine military leaders of the 1976 to 1983 dictatorship.
Moreno Ocampo investigated crimes of Argentina's military junta and violations of the laws of war during the Malvinas-Falkans conflict. The experience made him a highly competent and skilled ICC
Prosecutor, as David Donat-Cattin, Senior Officer of the International Law and Human Rights Program at Parliamentarians for Global Action said once.
Mr. Moreno Ocampo also led prosecutions arising from Argentina's September 1987 military rebellion, amongst other key roles. Ocampo's wide-ranging career as a public servant includes positions at Transparency International, an anti-corruption organization where he is Board Member and former President of the Latin America division, and Harvard University, where he completed a term as the Robert F. Kennedy Visiting Professor of Law.
Richard Dicker, director of Human Rights Watch's international justice program said when Moreno Ocampo emerged as the consensus candidate to hold the office of the first chief prosecutor in the International Criminal Court (ICC
), "The election of an experienced prosecutor and Harvard professor is further proof that the Court will be a serious, responsible and effective institution,"
"The Prosecutor will be charged with one of the most difficult tasks facing the Court in making crucial decisions about which investigations to pursue," said Fiona McKay, International Justice Program Director of Lawyer's Committee for Human Rights, at the time of his election.
"His election brings us one step closer to having a fully operational International Criminal Court."
The ICC is a court of last resort for individuals accused of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. It could take at least a year before the ICC begins its first trials, according to ICC experts. Top officers and professional staff grow to 350 by the close of 2004.
