    African leaders cautiously back strategy to quit global court

    ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - African leaders have backed a "strategy of collective withdrawal" from the International Criminal Court (ICC), but it came with unspecified reservations, an African Union official said on Wednesday after this week's African Union summit.

    The official did not give details about the strategy or the reservations, but it highlights broad antipathy towards the court among Africans who feel the ICC unfairly targets them.

    A document seen by Reuters before the summit proposed a co-ordinated withdrawal unless the ICC was reformed. It included a call for "regionalisation" of international law, a reference to proposals for an African war crimes court.

    Almost a third of the ICC's 124 members are African, and a withdrawal by a large number of them would cripple a court that has yet to fulfil hopes that it would ensure perpetrators of war crimes and genocide never go unpunished.

    Three African states - South Africa, Gambia and Burundi - signalled last year their intention to quit what is the world's first permanent global war crimes court.

    The ICC, which is 15 years old this year, has only ever charged Africans, including the presidents of Kenya and Sudan, although it has procedures open at earlier stages dealing with crimes in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and South America.

    "The leaders of AU member states endorsed the strategy of collective withdrawal, with reservations," the AU official, who asked not be identified, told Reuters.

    It was not immediately clear if the agreement reached at the AU summit was the same as the document circulated beforehand.

    They obviously don't want to be subject to meddling by Euro-shitlib do-gooders for the way niggers settle their own affairs. Bush Justice has worked perfectly fine in Africa for thousands of years, and they see no reason to adopt modernity in its place. Niggers are still niggers, but I have ful suport for any obstacle to globalism, regardless of the source.

    It is widely known that Idi Amin caused the killing and disappearance of scores of people during his eight-year rule in Uganda. The uncertainty however remains in the actual number of people slain by the country’s third president.

    The International Commission of Jurists in Geneva estimate the number of people killed by Amin at between 80,000 and 300,000. Another estimate by exile organisations and Amnesty International, put the number of people killed at 500,000 out of the 12 million Ugandans at the time.

    This is a positive.

    The ICC is a Soros :jew: Judenrat / Globalist Kort, a Kangaroo Institute o' Western & ZOG Imperialism.

    Niggers may be fucked up but dey shaww has a point, why are all doze Western leaders and NATO Generals missing from da list o' da accused International Criminals?

    If the global gibs racket would withdraw from them, they'd happily go back to slaughtering their own. Never heard of Namibia invading anyone.
