US revokes visa of International Criminal Court prosecutor

  • The US has revoked the entry visa for the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Fatou Bensouda.

    The decision is thought to be the US response to Ms Bensouda's investigation into possible war crimes by American forces and their allies in Afghanistan.

    The US secretary of state had warned the US might refuse or revoke visas to any ICC staff involved in such probes.

    The Americans despite all their talk of international law, never like it when true international law, aka not controlled by them, is applied to them.

    I remember during the Afghan war that Bush Jnr said he would never recognise any decisions by the international court which went against American forces, so this is nothing new really, but still, denying entry...

    Seems like Trump is making a rod for his own back on this one.
