The International Criminal Court (ICC) is a permanent court located in The Hague and created in 1998. Its mission is to prosecute those allegedly responsible for the crimes of genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.
On 12 December 2011, Ms. Fatou Bensouda of The Gambia was elected by consensus Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court by the Assembly of States Parties.
Ms. Bensouda had previously held the position of ICC Deputy Prosecutor (Prosecutions), icc-cpi.int said.
On Sept. 2nd, in a controversial decision, the U.S. government announced that it had sanctioned the ICC’s attorney general, Fatou Bensouda, as well as another senior court official, BBC reported.
The reason for the sanction imposed by the United States on the ICC Prosecutor General was reported by Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo.
The senior US official indicated that both Bensouda and Phakiso Mochochoko, head of the Jurisdiction, Complementarity and Cooperation Division, were sanctioned because they made “illegitimate attempts to subject US citizens to their jurisdiction.”
