Sudanese Foreign Minister Rails Against ICC as Political Tool


Sudan’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour has condemned the International Criminal Court, which he believes has turned into a political tool to target African leaders.

In a recent speech to the U.N. General Assembly, Ghandour stated that “the relationship between the Security Council and the International Criminal Court … has shown again and again that the scourge of politicization has turned it (the ICC) into a tool for targeting African leaders.”

The ICC has indicted African authority figures such as ex-president of the Republic of Cote d’Ivoire: Laurent Gbagbo, the late ruler of Libya: Muammar Gaddafi and Sudan’s President Omar Hassan al-Bashir.
