For ‘Daring’ To Probe Alleged US War Crimes, Trump Seizes ICC Officials Assets.
•Signs Executive Order blocking transfer of property of ICC officials.
The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has approved an executive order, against some officials of the International Criminal Court (ICC) who tries to (without the consent of U.S) investigate US activities, especially the alleged military war crimes in Afghanistan.
Trump ordered that “All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person, of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn.”
This was disclosed in a White House statement issued on Thursday.
According to Trump, ” any attempt by the ICC to investigate, arrest, detain, or prosecute any United States personnel without the consent of the United States, or of personnel of countries that are United States allies and who are not parties to the Rome Statute or have not otherwise consented to ICC jurisdiction, constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.”
Trump claimed that by prosecuting the U.S. officials, ICC seeks to hinder its national interest.
