Now That Burundi Has Left The ICC, Here Are Other African Countries Likely To Follow Suit


In January 2017, African leaders adopted a resolution to collectively withdraw from the ICC. Few months before then, precisely in October 2016, Burundi showed its seriousness to leave the International Criminal Court by presenting its letter of intent to withdraw to the Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon. Alan Nyamitwe, Burundian Foreign Minister said, “I believe that there are some other politically motivated reasons which have pushed the ICC to act on African cases. How many times have you heard about the ICC investigating crimes committed in Iraq?

How many times have you heard the ICC investigating crimes committed in Afghanistan? Or let me go further, which group has been under investigation for crimes committed in Libya?”
