Under the Sky, One should be equal as long as Human Being. Underprivileged social class, Before the birth, even after the death, this underprivileged group should follow the pre-framed given route. Upon realizing that crossing the given route is limited, its trial object would be named as ‘Betrayer’ or targeted as ‘Gov. Sanction’. Extending of this status, urged and resulted let David create hand written images between # 1 and # 58. Still, there, no one, no response, no way to get out, its condition is extended.

Politicking

Its obvious ICC is being used as "Political" tool if they don't like or they Presidential Party bet loses like what is happening in the Philippines whose Senate,Congress,Supreme Court are still intact and functioning! Who are they to interfere on a sovereign country and is far from what is happening in Africa is.

Philippines anti-government "Liberal Party" is obviously behind this who has sent their attack dog to convene with their cohorts in ICC.

The ICC is very literate. On international news we see extrajudicial killings and Duterte spurning on those murders. It is no surprise that a growing audience views his activity as supporting a personal illegal drugs empire. Further, suspicions and misunderstandings will continue to grow until legal behavior of the state is restored. Now over 12,000 murders into a criminal process that is damaging international economy and polity (and morality) an investigation is launched. That investigation can only occur where a nation state is abrogating its internal legal responsibility and unable to arrest its criminal activity. At this time, The Philippines is not changed with any crime. If that happens, then identified Philippine criminals may become subject to arrest, perhaps including Duterte. Hopefully, the process is swift and efficient in the coming years, evading global destabilization being created by The Philipines that may worsen war in Chechnya and countless other locations where we experience violent conflict. An investigation is intended to help a criminal state to adjust, restore internal state peace, and follow a respectable legal path. If strongman (dictator?) Duterte succeeds in his current efforts to have China invade The Philippines, this will not change ICC process.

Negotiated Engagement: The Latest in the Africa-ICC Relationship

African Union presidents "family photo" with United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres.jpg
Saturday, March 10, 2018 - 20:49

At the thirtieth summit of the African Union (AU) last month, African states took a bold decision. They agreed to ask the United Nations General Assembly to seek an advisory opinion from the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the issue of head of state immunity. For years now, this has been an ongoing point of contention for many states in their relationship with the International Criminal Court (ICC). So what’s behind the AU’s decision and what does it tell us about the ICC and its relationship with African states?
