PART VIII—PROTECTION OF NATIONAL SECURITY OR THIRD PARTY INFORMATION
158. In determining what action to take in relation to a matter to which this Part applies, the Attorney-General shall take into account the power of the ICC to refer a matter to the Assembly of States Parties or to the Security Council in accordance with paragraph 7 of article 87 of the Rome Statute if the ICC considers that a requested State is not acting in accordance with its obligations under the Rome Statute.
7. Where a State Party fails to comply with a request to cooperate by the Court contrary to the provisions of this Statute, thereby preventing the Court from exercising its functions and powers under this Statute, the Court may make a finding to that effect and refer the matter to the Assembly of States Parties or, where the Security Council referred the matter to the Court, to the Security Council.
