The International Criminal Court for a number of years has actually failed to bring advanced countries’ leaders to face the law for their crimes against humanity in the third world, especially in Africa
Established based on the Rome Status and adopted in 1998, the International Criminal Court, ICC, in The Hague, Holland, initially began its work on July 1, 2002.
As the first permanent international criminal court, some of the ICC tasks are to prosecute those responsible for genocide, war crimes against humanity, and crimes committed through military aggression.
For some time, the International Criminal Court has been under pressure and criticism for centering its effective activities and targeting war crimes in only African countries, thus; putting only African leaders behind bars, while they pretend not aware of the political and medical crimes, foreign countries, including Holland, The United States of America, Britain, Belgium, etc, have committed to Africa.
Certain crimes occurred during and after colonialism in Africa that the International Criminal Court should have done something about them when it was established. After slavery, Africa suffered Apartheid in South Africa, while King Leopold’s reign of terror decimated the Congolese in the Belgian colony of Congo.
Following the history of Africa under colonialism until the time independence swept through the continent, apart from physical crimes, medical research also proved enough that Europe and America deliberately inflicted man-made diseases in Africa through vaccination or via the eradication of other diseases such as polio.
In reality, Europe and America shouldn’t have escaped justice. It should have been the priority for African leaders to bring all those responsible for crimes in Africa to face justice on Africa soil. This was never done; instead, today there is International Criminal Court in The Hague, rather putting African leaders that commit crimes against humanity behind bars.
American and European leaders have swept all the crimes they committed to Africa under the carpet and rather brought in African leaders they think have committed a crime against mankind to The Hague to be prosecuted.
The ineffective and partial service, promoted by the ICC, sparked unrest in Africa, leading to protests and the call of some African countries to quit the ICC.
On our rare health blog, ‘Secrets of HIV-Aids and Ebola Facts Journal,’ we have written numerous articles about the incompetency of the International Criminal Court and even suggested that it’s time for them to close down their offices.
It seems the International Criminal Court wants to impress the world and rebuke the accusation of being corrupt, partial, and bias jurists.
In 2017, the department’s prosecutor Fatu Bensuda asked the judges to issue permission to investigate war crimes that could have been committed by the US, CIA, and the Taliban in Afghanistan.
The International Criminal Court supported requests and decisions that have caused outrage in the United States. Just as we know that elites don’t go to jail, the aggressive and corrupt America, that never likes to be investigated, protested and accused by the International Criminal Court of corruption and biased investigators.
Does the International Criminal Court deserve to be branded biased and corrupt? Yes, they deserve it. Why for so long they have ignored the crimes against humanity in Africa but now wants attention by investigating the US government?
The same thing has happened to the World Health Organization. Decades after assisting the US government to inflict biological weapons, and sending contaminated vaccines to Africa, leading to the spread of HIV-Aids, Tuberculosis, Burkitt’s lymphoma, Kaposi’s sarcoma, nodding disease, and Ebola, the US government turned around to accuse the World Health Organization of corruption.
This is a lesson to all organizations aiding and supporting crimes of the so-called super countries. It’s also a lesson to the media and search engine companies, aiding, supporting, and abetting the crimes of governments, rich people, and politicians, while they suppress information about those crimes.
The International Criminal Court needs to be very careful if the judges want to be respected and recognized as an efficient juristic organization.
They must not feel sorry for the advanced countries’ leaders if they don’t feel sorry for African leaders. No matter how hard the situation may seem to be, they must let them face the law for every crime against humanity.
The International Criminal Court must stop protecting these mad dogs because, in the end, they will turn round to bite them, as we are witnessing today.
