S. Sudan leader: Int’l court ‘humiliates’ Africa

JUBA, South Sudan (AP) — South Sudan’s president is criticizing the International Criminal Court, saying the court is designed to humiliate African leaders.

Salva Kiir spoke today during a visit by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, who faces ICC charges related to Kenya’s post-election violence in 2007-08 that killed more than 1,000 people.

Kiir said that South Sudan — the world’s newest country — will not sign the Rome Statute that binds countries to the ICC process despite offers of “assistance” in exchange for signing it.

Kiir and Kenyatta also discussed a planned transport corridor that is to run from Kenya’s coastal of city of Lamu into South Sudan. A proposed pipeline would be used to transport South Sudan’s oil to the coast without having to go through Sudan.

President Kiir? It's not the ICC that makes some African leaders look bad....
