Gambia becomes 3rd African nation to leave ICC — calls it ‘International Caucasian Court’ and accuses it of unfairly targeting Africa while ignoring the crimes of the West


These African countries probably do have a point. Tony Blair was let off the hook. Human rights in Singapore are very bad but no action is taken against this country. Singapore tortures male prisoners. Even if you outstay a visa you get caned.

Gambia has announced it is leaving the International Criminal Court, referring to its ICC acronym as the “International Caucasian Court” and accusing it of unfairly targeting Africa while ignoring the crimes of the West.

The country announced the decision on television on Tuesday night, with Gambian Information Minister Sheriff Bojang accusing the ICC of the “persecution and humiliation of people of color, especially Africans.”

Bojang went on to state that while the court is used to persecute Africans and “especially their leaders,” it ignores crimes committed by the West.

“There are many Western countries, at least 30, that have committed heinous war crimes against independent sovereign states and their citizens since the creation of the ICC and not a single Western war criminal has been indicted,” Bojang said.

The information minister specifically noted the case of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, whom the ICC decided not to indict over the Iraq war.
