banjul - Gambia withdrew from the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague. This was announced by the Gambian information minister Tuesday.
The government of Gambia accuses to have its partisan court and prosecute only Africans. 'The Government of the Islamic Republic of The Gambia hereby declares that the membership of the Gambia to the ICC is withdrawn', said minister Sheriff Bojang against the state.
'This decision stems from the fact that the ICC, although the name means International Criminal Court, actually the Caucasian International Court of persecution and humiliation of colored people, especially Africans, is' the minister continued.
In a statement, the Gambia has tried to the European Union for the court challenge because of the many dead migrants in the Mediterranean Sea, but it has received no response. 'There are many Western countries, especially thirty, who have committed terrible war crimes against sovereign countries and their inhabitants. However, since the establishment of the ICC is not prosecuted any Western war criminal. '
124 countries are members of the court, established in 2002. Burundi had earlier this month managed to terminate the membership and last week South Africa followed. Many African countries are angry that since the establishment of the ICC only Africans have been brought.
