ICC says Trump sanctions attack the court, victims of atrocities

The International Criminal Court has rejected the US president’s plans to impose sanctions on some of its officials.

Donald Trump is trying to stop an investigation into allegations of American war crimes in Afghanistan.

But the ICC says the move will undermine its efforts to ensure accountability for mass atrocities.

Al Jazeera’s Rosiland Jordan reports from Washington.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain, 3 September 2020:

International Criminal Court hits back at ‘unprecedented’ and ‘unacceptable’ US attacks

THE International Criminal Court (ICC) condemned sanctions imposed by the US on its court’s prosecutor and a member of her office as “unprecedented” yesterday.

It warned that the latest measures announced by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday were “another attempt” to interfere with its work in addressing grave crimes and humanitarian atrocities.

“These coercive acts, directed at an international judicial institution and its civil servants, are unprecedented and constitute serious attacks against the court, the Rome Statute system of international criminal justice and the rule of law more generally.”
