US lifts Trump-era sanctions against ICC prosecutor

The US has lifted sanctions on the International Criminal Court (ICC) top prosecutor Fatou Bensouda.

The sanctions were imposed under former President Donald Trump over the court's investigation's into alleged war crimes by the US in Afghanistan, and US ally Israel in the Palestinian territories.

Announcing the move, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the sanctions "were inappropriate and ineffective" and called for closer co-operation.
The US has also removed Phakiso Mochochoko, head of the ICC's Jurisdiction, Complementarity and Cooperation Division, from the Specially Designated Nationals list, and has terminated a separate 2019 policy on visa restrictions on specific ICC personnel.


A wrong righted. Trump's sanctions were the mark of a gangster regime.
