The Gambia to pull out of UN crimes court

The Gambia says it will pull of the International Criminal Court (ICC) after accusing the tribunal of persecuting and humiliating Africans.

The Gambia joins South Africa and Burundi in withdrawing from the court which was set up to try the world’s worst crimes, but now being accused of unfairly targeting African leaders.

Gambian information minister sheriff Bojang said the court had ignored western war crimes and cited its failure to indict former British Prime Minister tony Blair over the Iraq War.

Speaking on state television, he said the ICC was “an International Caucasian court for the persecution and humiliation of people of colour, especially Africans”.
