Judge Chile Eboe-Osuji responds to attacks against the International Criminal Court from US officials over its investigation of alleged war crimes in Afghanistan. 'Do you want me to tell you …. the chamber is going to drop it? I cannot.'
'Do you want me to tell you …. the chamber is going to drop it? I cannot,' Judge Chile Eboe-Osuji on US attacks of ICC for investigating alleged war crimes in Afghanistan.
The International Criminal Court said that despite "a reasonable basis" to consider war crimes committed in Afghanistan, there was little chance of a successful prosecution. Rights group Amnesty criticized the decision.
Fatou Bensouda, the ICC's chief prosecutor, said she will be able to continue her work despite having her entry visa revoked. Last year, she asked to open a probe into alleged war crimes by US troops in Afghanistan.
The Philippines is withdrawing from the International Criminal Court because its government fears investigation. Other countries have never even joined. Nonetheless, the ICC is more than just a paper tiger.
