Trump announces sanctions against International Criminal Court (ICC) officials for their investigations into US war crimes. in Afghanistan.
“The President (Donald Trump) has authorized economic sanctions against officials of the International Criminal Court directly involved with any initiative to investigate or accuse US officials without the consent of the United States,” the White House said in a statement released Thursday.
The statement thus denounced the ICC’s investigations into the war crimes that the North American country has committed in Afghanistan.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has asserted in this regard that the ICC investigation, based in the Dutch city of The Hague, “is being driven by an organization of dubious integrity,” accusing Russia of being involved.
Due to sanctions authorized by Trump, the assets of ICC officials in the United States will be blocked, their entry will be denied, and neither employees nor their families will be able to obtain a visa from the North American country.
