Luanda — The minister of Foreign Affairs, Georges Chikoti, said on Monday in Luanda that the actions of the International Criminal Court (ICC) has been targeting more the African states or personalities or less strong regions.
In this regard, the minister spoke of the intention of the withdrawal of South Africa, Namibia, Kenya and many other African countries that also intend to abandon the ICC as it has proven to be a court focused only to condemn African or less strong countries .
The minister, who was speaking to the Angolan Public Television (TPA) in "Grande Entrevista" programme, highlighted that it is not very good from the law point of view.
"For example, if we look at the case of President Laurent Gbagbo, the ICC cannot build a case against him, but it keeps him there, and this is just one example of the actions of ICC", he said.
Should the threats be given effect, he said, the court will fall apart because if most African countries withdraw there will not be much basis to survive.
He also pointed out that if we look at the major crimes, most of them were not committed by Africans, such as the great wars in Libya, Iraq, among others, "so there cannot be a court that trial some culprits and ignore others".
For this reason, the minister considers that there is a prejudice created particularly by the Western world, in which one tries to blame Africans for everything.
