The National – 9 June 2020

In the near-two decades since the International Criminal Court was set up to try the worst violations of international human rights law, it has faced harsh criticism for its highly selective approach to the question of who should be put on trial.

The ICC and NGOs: Modern Day Manifestations of “The White Man’s Burden” By Tony Cartalucci

22 March 2019 — New Eastern Outlook

ICC

The International Criminal Court (ICC) is not international nor a legitimate court, but is most certainly criminal.

US TO ICC – WE WILL BREAK YOUR LEGS BY Andre Vltchek

18 March 2019 — New Eastern Outlook

Well, not exactly like that, but in a way, yes. Now, finally, ‘the gloves are off’. The U.S. is openly threatening the historically timid ICC (International Criminal Court) and its judges. And unexpectedly, the ICC is hitting back. It refuses to shut up, to kneel, and to beg for mercy.

The ICC intends to violate the decision of the Security Council and try Bachar el-Assad By Thierry Meyssan

12 March 2019 — Voltaire Network

The deception of international penal Justice

Everyone believed it to be impossible for the International Criminal Court (ICC) to try the Syrians, since China and Russia exercised their vetos against a Western draft resolution to do so. But no!

Laurent Fabius and Justice By Thierry Meyssan

26 My 2014 — Voltaire Network

“Before our eyes”

Laurent Fabius’ proposal to the International Criminal Court for crimes committed in Syria was rejected by the UN. Indeed, hidden behind the appearance of justice, the ICC is a tool of Western imperialism. Its procedure is grotesque, it does not hesitate to invent imaginary crimes to convict defendants and it participates in NATO propaganda operations. Yes, we want justice, and it must begin by judging Mr Fabius for his crimes in Syria.
