عنوان مقاله [English]
The International Criminal Court (ICC) is the most important international judicial body for the trial of international criminals. This court, which has been around for two decades, needs to use the mass media to be recognized by the international community and the people of the world. The role of the media in identifying the aforementioned court is a double-edged sword; Because, on the one hand, the proper functioning of the media can be effective in increasing the international legitimacy of this judicial body but on the other hand, the inappropriate performance of the media in the form of spreading false news about this court can destroy the achievements of this court, which is owed to decades of efforts to establish such a court. The purpose of this article is to examine the role of fake and false news published in the media on the performance of the ICC, emphasizing the Kenyan government's case in this court. In this article, the author tries to answer the question whether the media and the publication of fake information by them can affect the performance of the ICC and are there solutions to neutralize the role of the media that publishes fake news? The research method in this article is descriptive-analytical and the method of collecting information is library-documentary. The findings of this research show that the publication of fake news by the media can have a negative effect on the performance of the ICC but if the court adopts an open and transparent media policy, it can neutralize the role of fake news on its performance and prevent its credibility in the eyes of international public opinion. Finally, suggestions have been made for the international media of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
