Zambians refuse to leave ICC


The PF maneuvers to leave the International Criminal Court have flopped after Zambians including some right thinking PF members rejected the decision to leave the ICC.

The majority population representing a percentage of 91.43% submitted that Zambia should remain member of the ICC.

Only a handful number of about 8.57% submitted that Zambia should withdraw from the ICC.

Hundred and twelve Civil Society Organizations submitted whilst 3379 were individual submissions.

The validation process of this critical exercise has been done behind closed doors, in a campaign to manipulate the figures.

The International Criminal Court is an intergovernmental organization and international tribunal that sits in The Hague in the Netherlands.

The ICC has the jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes.

The ICC is intended to complement existing national judicial systems and it may therefore only exercise its jurisdiction when certain conditions are met, such as when national courts are unwilling or unable to prosecute criminals or when the United Nations Security Council.
