On 9 March 2012, five judges of the International Criminal Court (ICC) were sworn in at a ceremony held at the seat of the Court in The Hague. Judges Howard Morrison (United Kingdom), Anthony T. Carmona (Trinidad and Tobago), Olga Herrera Carbuccia (Dominican Republic), Robert Fremr (Czech Republic) and Chile Eboe-Osuji (Nigeria) were elected at the latest session of the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute (ASP) in December 2011 for nine-year terms.

Judge Miriam Defensor-Santiago (Republic of the Philippines), who was also elected in December 2011, was unavailable due to personal circumstances. The solemn undertaking for her will take place at a later date.

In accordance with article 45 of the Rome Statute, founding treaty of the ICC, the ceremony was held in open court. Each judge made a solemn undertaking before the President of the ASP, H.E. Tiina Intelmann, stating: "I solemnly undertake that I will perform my duties and exercise my powers as a judge of the International Criminal Court honourably, faithfully, impartially and conscientiously, and that I will respect the confidentiality of investigations and prosecutions and the secrecy of deliberations".
