The United States will not cooperate with the International Criminal Court and will take all possible measures to protect its citizens from harassment by the ICC. This was stated by Advisor to the President of the United States on national security John Bolton, reports RIA News.


Up to the sanctions! Washington threatens International Criminal Court


In his speech in Washington, Bolton said that the US authorities are using and will continue to apply all possible measures to protect their citizens from unlawful prosecution by an illegal court, including the imposition of sanctions against the judges of the ICC. At the same time, he added that the United States never helped the ICC, did not cooperate with it and are not going to join it.

Washington will consider the possibility of taking action in the UN Security Council to limit the powers of the court and deprive it of its jurisdiction over citizens of countries that have not ratified the Rome Statute
- said Bolton, while adding that the United States will prosecute the judges of the ICC under US law

Bolton noted that this concerns the intention of the ICC to prosecute the US military for crimes against humanity committed in Afghanistan.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) was established on July 17 of 1998 on the basis of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, which entered into force on July 1 of the year 2002 after it was ratified by the 60 states. Its competence includes the prosecution of those responsible for genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity. The headquarters of the court is in The Hague.

Many countries, including the United States, Russia and China do not recognize the jurisdiction of this court and refuse to cooperate with it.

      The guys got high, and then they said: "Come on, let's look at the actions of the United States from the point of view of human rights." And it would be fine if they said that in Russia or China ... They said it at the ICC.
      ICC in The Hague.
      The Hague is a suburb of Amsterdam.

      Lyokha! You will not believe! They really fight with the whole world! You imagine! Are they in the ring of enemies that surrounded them and (USA) conduct successful offensives in all directions? Here Russia has no enemies at all! Therefore, Russia does not conduct any offensive operations and does not capture anyone !!! Can we make enemies too?

      Our truth does not threaten the ICC judges as the Americans do ...
      and generally threaten the judge in a decent society as it is not accepted.
      I think that the United States, in the ecstasy of its exclusivity, is ready to step over all the limits of decency and human dignity.
      And then what example sets Bolton to all other states ...
      so after all, Great Kim can just as well react to the positions of international organizations ... the world is heading towards lawlessness.

        Bolton just scored on an international court. This is an open disrespect for the court. And this is an occasion for the ICC to send this bolt to the dock for his legal nihilism. wassat

        And what example sets all states? Yes, such that the US court is the fairest! What is the coolest US jurisdiction! Catch the difference in this matter from them, and from us !? With us, we must obey, and with them, we must obey! So, what are we going to do? Obey their laws or establish
        their? There is no third! All international law comes down to submission to US laws! PS: I’m writing not according to the training manual of the Kremlin!

      The statute of the court - the Rome Statute - was developed with the participation of Russia. It was adopted at the Diplomatic Conference of Plenipotentiaries under the auspices of the UN in 1998, entered into force in 2002 and began to operate a year later. Russia signed the document on September 13, 2000, but did not ratify it until 2016.
      In 2016, Russia decided to withdraw from the agreement on the International Criminal Court in The Hague. In the Kremlin, this decree of the president was explained by the defense of the country's national interests.

      And what has 300 years to do with it? In Russia, some people even dictate their conditions at age 20! Provided that these persons are in the untouchable clan. And this is without three hundred years!

    Why is it so not specific? We need more specifics! Let's say this: "Limit the powers of the International Criminal Court and deprive it of jurisdiction over citizens of the United States, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Canada and expand it to other," inferior "nations."

      In principle, this court works very selectively. And very muddy. Recall how war crimes through the former Yugoslavia passed through it. Obviously biased against the Serbian military and politicians, and for the Albanian flayers, who Serbs were disassembled into organs, for some reason they were condescending. negative

        I agree. But until now it was all under the cover of "democracy", "impartiality", "impartiality", etc. And now that this court is only for those to whom the Anglo-Saxons point to, it is said openly. Ie, as the saying goes, "The masks are dropped, the visors are open"! .. And Trump acts in this way in everything. "Down with diplomacy! Long live the cruel world of business!"

    You can hate the Americans, but who really does not abandon their own so it is they. Let the cutthroats of the USA commit atrocities all over the world by the state and they are protected by it. But God sees everything and sooner or later will reward these mad jackals with their deserts.

    World, you say? And what, Russian banks, for example, are not dependent? The same SWIFT - Western. And what about big business? Euro and dollar are also Western. And "our" government, striving in everything to "world standards" in everything - they are not African or Chinese, but also Western. Capitalism lives by the law of the jungle - eat your neighbor before he eats you! While we look back at their "standards", we will be gnawed like a sugar bone. And the introduction of other "standards" the laws of the capitalist world do not allow, except to crush the economic power or the 3rd world. The first is unrealistic in the next 500 years, judging by the rate of "getting up from its knees" (compare with the USSR after the civil one!), The second is also unrealistic, because the Strategic Missile Forces alone are not enough for this, you also need a sea of ​​allies, but there are none.

    Yes there are sanctions, it is necessary to close this desk. Ever since the trial of Milosevic. A bunch of legal accomplices to Islamic radicals - from Albanian Kosovars to Afghan Mujahideen. If all these judges in Somalia were sent to Yemen, they would be the first girls in the village. Defenders of the unfortunate thugs!
