ICC: Stand up to the superpower

The International Criminal Court recently delivered a shock ruling.

The ICC’s pre-trial judges decided unanimously against opening an investigation into war crimes in Afghanistan.

Opening an investigation would not serve the “interests of justice,” according to the judges.

Yet is hard to see how the judges have themselves served the interests of justice. They have denied any redress to victims of atrocities.

The decision was made despite the clear findings of an assessment by Fatou Bensouda, the ICC’s chief prosecutor. She concluded there was a “reasonable basis to believe” that war crimes had been committed by the US military, the CIA, the Taliban and Afghan state forces.
