The Government of the Islamic Republic of The Gambia has announced it has left the International Criminal Court (ICC) with effect from yesterday October 25, 2016. This information was contained in a press release issued by the Government. Below is the full text of the release:
The Government of the Islamic Republic of The Gambia hereby informs all and sundry, the withdrawal of the Islamic Republic of The Gambia’s Membership of the International Criminal Court, the ICC. This action is warranted by the fact that the ICC despite being called the International Criminal Court is in fact an International Caucasian Court for the persecution and humiliation of people of color, especially Africans.
This Infamous Caucasian Court for the persecution of Africans and especially their leaders showed its true colors when it declared immediately after the United Kingdom release their investigation report on the Iraq war pronouncing former Prime Minister Tony Blair of committing war crimes; that the ICC will not indict Tony Blair for war crimes. There are many Western countries, at least 30, that have committed heinous war crimes against independent sovereign states and their citizens since the creation of the ICC and not a single Western war criminal has been indicted.
The Gambia took the European Union to the ICC about a year ago for the Mass Murder (Genocide) of thousands of young Africans on European coastal waters and since then nothing has been heard from the ICC. Thousands of young Africans in search of greener pastures have been dying on European coasts on a weekly basis – for what crime? Because they are black and Africans who want to migrate to Europe in search of better life as the Europeans did hundreds of years ago when they were in abject poverty and invaded Africa, Asia and other regions without any documentation, that is, passports or visas. They ended up colonizing Africa with such catastrophic consequences that the African Continent is suffering from up to today.
After several warnings to the UN General Assembly and the Security Council in particular about the mass murder of young African migrants on European beaches and waters in our annual speeches to the United Nations General Assembly fell on deaf ears, The Gambia Government engaged the ICC to prosecute those leaders and countries responsible for the genocide. We made it very clear that if the ICC fails to bring those responsible to justice, the Islamic Republic of The Gambia would be obliged to use other more stringent options to make those responsible for the deaths of thousands of young African migrants on the European coast face justice or pay a very high price for their racist genocide.
As from today, Tuesday, 25th October 2016, we are no longer a member of the ICC and have started to complete the process as stipulated in the statutes creating the ICC.
We depend on the ALMIGHTY ALLAH and ALLAH willing, all the racist genocidal criminals responsible for the continuing mass slaughter of Africans would face justice. That would be a lesson to human kind and justice shall prevail. Inshallah. The pursuit of equal justice for all of humanity is greater than any nation.
