African countries to ditch ICC


Foreign Affairs Minister Harry Kalaba says the 2016 African Union Summit will table intentions by some African countries to pull out of the International Criminal Court.

Mr Kalaba was responding to Lubansenshi Independent Member of Parliament Patrick Mucheleka after the presentation of a Ministerial Statement on the Just Ended African Union Summit in South-Africa.


Mr Mucheleka wanted to know the position of the AU regarding contemplations by South-Africa to pull out of the International Criminal Court-ICC.

South Africa hinted on the possibilities of polling from the ICC after demands by the court to arrest Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir while he was attending the Just ended AU-Summit in South-Africa.


Meanwhile Mr Kalaba revealed that the just ended AU-Summit in South-Africa discussed the launch of the Continental Free Trade Area -CFTA-aimed at integrating the African Market.
