Biden plans to send Americans charged with crimes to The Hague? I wonder how Americans would feel about that. It’s rare that Americans aren’t charged in America for crimes. Biden plans to try to halt US based prosecutions in favor of hague prosecutions? America can deal with its war criminals! These people could definitely indict obama for that wedding party in Yemen bombing. Does he plan to turn Obama over?
Reversing Trump, Biden Repeals Sanctions on Human Rights ProsecutorThe move revokes an executive order that put the United States at odds with many of its European allies.www.nytimes.com
"President Biden on Friday revoked President Donald J. Trump’s executive order authorizing sanctions on top officials at the International Criminal Court, reversing a decision that put the United States at odds with many of its European allies.
The move comes after the Trump administration decided last year to sanction the court’s chief prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, and a senior official, Phakiso Mochochoko, after the court opened an investigation into potential war crimes committed by American troops in Afghanistan. It also precedes, by days, a deadline for the Biden administration to respond to a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Mr. Trump’s executive action.
The reversal of the executive order means sanctions on Ms. Bensouda and Mr. Mochochoko will be lifted, Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken said in a statement announcing the administration’s decision. Additionally, travel restrictions the Trump administration placed on the court’s personnel in 2019 will be reversed, he said.
'These decisions reflect our assessment that the measures adopted were inappropriate and ineffective,' Mr. Blinken added."
