Verklaring van Jean-Yves Le Drian – Internationaal Strafhof – Aankondiging van individuele sancties door de Verenigde Staten (3 september 2020) [fr]

Ik heb kennis genomen van de aankondiging op 2 september 2020 door de Amerikaanse autoriteiten betreffende individuele sancties tegen de hoofdaanklager van het Internationaal Strafhof, Fatou Bensouda, en het hoofd van de afdeling rechterlijke bevoegdheid, complementariteit en samenwerking, Phakiso Mochochoko.

On June 12, I had expressed my dismay over the U.S. Government’s adoption of the executive order of June 11, which serves as a basis for the adoption of these individual sanctions.

The measures announced on September 2 represent a serious attack on the Court and the States Parties to the Rome Statute, and beyond that, a challenge to multilateralism and the independence of the judiciary.

France reaffirms its steadfast support for the International Criminal Court and its staff, as well as the independence of the judiciary.

It calls on the United States to withdraw these measures.

France will continue to mobilize its efforts to ensure that the Court is able to fulfill its mission independently and impartially, in accordance with the Rome Statute.
