Govt. Ask USA to Rescind Decision MoFA

The Government of The Gambia on Friday 4th September 2020 called on the Government of the United States of America to reverse sanction imposed on Fatou Bensouda, Chief Prosecutor and other officials of the International Criminal Court.

Below is the full text of the press release issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation and Gambians Abroad.

“The Government of The Gambia expresses its dismay over the announcement made by the US Government imposing sanctions against Fatou Bensouda, Chief Prosecutor and other staffs of the International Criminal Court.These acts constitute gross interference on the mandate, independence and impartiality of the Court in the fight against impunity for perpetrators of the most serious crimes of international concern.

The Gambia stands in solidarity with the Court, its Chief Prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, an upstanding citizen of The Gambia, and all other officials of the Court targeted by these sanctions.

The Gambia continues to value and support the important work of the Court in upholding world peace and security. It therefore urges the US Government to reverse the sanctions imposed on the Officials of the Court.”
