South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC) on Monday said the International Criminal Court (ICC) was “no longer useful to the purposes for which it was intended.’’

The ANC spoke after Sudanese President, Omar al-Bashir, wanted by the ICC for alleged war crimes in the Darfur conflict, arrived in South Africa to attend an AU summit.

Bashir looked unlikely to be arrested as the ANC-led Pretoria government had granted immunity to all attending the summit.

With many African states accusing the ICC of selective justice, the ANC also called for a review of ICC statutes to make them apply to all UN members.

    I think I shared their views on this as people like George Bush , Tony Blair, Netanyahu and others whose actions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya,Gaza etc led to deaths of millions of people walk away free. ICC shouldn’t be only for Africans and East Europeans.
