A criminal case has been brought against the Prosecutor and Judges of the International Criminal Court in Russia
In Russia, a criminal case was opened against the prosecutor and judges of the International Criminal Court in The Hague (Netherlands), who issued an arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin and Maria Lvova-Belova, authorized with parental rights in Russia. The case is brought against the Prosecutor of ICC, Karim Ahmad Khan and ICC Judges Tomoko Akane, Rosario Salvatore Aitala, and Sergio Gerardo Ugal.
Investigators claim that there is allegedly no “basis for criminal prosecution” for Putin. Furthermore, investigators allegedly claim that heads of state and Putin, in particular, enjoy absolute immunity from the jurisdiction of foreign countries, referring to the relevant Convention.
The decision of the International Criminal Court to issue an arrest warrant for the President of the Russian Federation became the most powerful reputational challenge to the Kremlin. However, attempts to exonerate the President of Russia do not stop there; The Investigative Committee is trying at a national level to undermine the practice of international institutions.
