Any person being investigated or prosecuted may request the disqualification of a prosecutor from any case "in which their impartiality might reasonably be doubted on any ground".  Requests for the disqualification of prosecutors are decided by the Appeals Chamber.  A prosecutor may be removed from office by an absolute majority of the states parties if he or she "is found to have committed serious misconduct or a serious breach of his or her duties" or is unable to exercise his or her functions.  However, critics of the Court argue that there are "insufficient checks and balances on the authority of the ICC prosecutor and judges" and "insufficient protection against politicized prosecutions or other abuses".  Henry Kissinger says the checks and balances are so weak that the prosecutor "has virtually unlimited discretion in practice".  Some efforts have been made to hold Kissinger himself responsible for perceived injustices of American foreign policy during his tenure in government. 
The stories of Eddie’s violence and the threats he had made to her life would give her grounds for her belief that her life she was facing a risk of death or serious bodily harm. Faced with that threat, then there are grounds upon which she could have reasonably believed that the response required to save herself was to kill Eddie.  The fact that she discharges all the bullets is, not of itself conclusive. If she believed it was necessary, in self-defence, to kill Eddie, then it was reasonable to make sure that he was in fact, dead.
