Time limitation is one of the legal institutions of the domestic law. This institution is more welcomed in the civil law system compared to the common law. Immunity, amnesty and time limitation are the most important obstacles in the ending of impunity culture. Immunity is a international phenomenon, whereas amnesty and time limitation are considered as domestic elements. International criminal law has rejected time limitation by creation of numerous international documents regarding the prosecution and conviction of perpetrators of international crimes. In this study, it is sought to analyse the status of recognition, implementation and rejection of time limitation in international criminal law.
