US lifts sanctions on ICC Chief Prosecutor

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken officially announced on Friday that the US is lifting the sanctions on the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda, and on Phakiso Mochochoko, the Head of the Jurisdiction, Complementarity and Cooperation Division of the Office of the Prosecutor.

“We continue to disagree strongly with the ICC’s actions relating to the Afghanistan and Palestinian situations. We maintain our longstanding objection to the Court’s efforts to assert jurisdiction over personnel of non-States Parties such as the United States and Israel,” Blinken said in a statement.
