The parameters of legal structures within which perpetrators of most serious international crimes are surrendered to the ICC and the legal frameworks within which the rights of such individuals are best protected are not sufficiently precise in international law. By examining both international and some national jurisprudence with regard to mala captus bene detentus practice, the reach of the right to challenge the legality of one’s arrest is evaluated with a conclusion that there is no uniform state or international practice and that the ICC Statute does not resolve the status of the doctrine nor does it regulate the effects of abuse of process against accused persons.
