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.
