The ICC will consider US and UK war crimes in Afghanistan

62
The Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Fatou Bensuda, said she would push for an investigation into the actions of the American and British military in Afghanistan from 2002 to the present. About it on Friday, 3 November, reports The Independent.


According to Bensud, she has strong evidence that soldiers and officers committed war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The ICC will consider US and UK war crimes in Afghanistan


In accordance with the policy and practice of the ICC, the focus will be on those most responsible for the most serious crimes allegedly committed in connection with the situation in Afghanistan.
She declared.

November 1 2016 reported that the ICC prosecutor’s office repeatedly drew attention to the alleged abuse of the position of the US military vis-à-vis prisoners in Afghanistan from 2003 to 2005, but the US authorities did not pay enough attention to this.

The ICC is the first permanent international criminal justice authority responsible for the prosecution of those responsible for genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity. Established on the basis of the Rome Statute adopted in the 1998 year. Officially began its work from July 1 2002, reports "Lenta.ru"

        So yes, but there is a suspicion that the woman will not live long - the CIA has a large arsenal of ways to eliminate dissidents.

          Respect will be if the US really condemns. The United States, of course, in this case they spit on a court decision, but the fact itself ...
          In the meantime, there is no reason to doubt that this is really another comedy act.
          As in that joke about a Jew, "Well, where did you get the money from?" "And I was already sitting on the bike."

        What are you talking about? What respect ??
        The International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor Fatou Bensuda considered the annexation of Crimea to Russia as a war with Ukraine and the occupation of its territories.
        This was commissioned by the United States in 2016. Do you really expect a fair trial of your own masters? There will be a verdict that there were no crimes. Or, at most, the performers will be blamed.

    More like a political declaration than subsequent real action. The United States and Great Britain do not extradite their citizens and subjects; their soldiers are usually outside any jurisdiction in such cases, that is, they have a license to kill and torture any person.

    The ICC is another US pocket structure. So it turned a blind eye to the crimes of Americans and suddenly woke up and decided to investigate? Although, if they wanted, they would just use the report on torture, which was published by the US Senate on December 9, 2014
    The full version of the report contains about six thousand pages. It explores the methods used by the CIA in secret detention centers outside the United States. However, some of the methods used bordered on torture.

But they will fabricate the case of chemical attacks in Syria and Assad's fault, although it is proved that the gas was British-made, and the British collaborate with terrorists and the American so-called coalition, where the Dutch are members.

    The United States does not recognize the ICC. They only recognize their own extraterritorial courts. And Bensuda is easily kidnapped in any country-limitrophy and taken to the United States - as has already been done more than once.
