(b)that an order of the Court is in force and is not subject to appeal,

(c)that property recoverable under a forfeiture order made by the Court remains unrecovered, or

(d)that any person has been notified of any proceedings in accordance with the ICC Statute,

is admissible in proceedings under this Act as evidence of the facts stated.

For this purpose a document is duly authenticated if it purports to be certified by any person in his capacity as a judge or officer of the ICC, to have been received in evidence or to be a copy of a document so received, or, as the case may be, to be the original document setting out or summarising the evidence or a true copy of that document.

(3)Nothing in this paragraph affects the admission of any evidence, whether contained in a document or otherwise, which is admissible apart from this paragraph.
