ICC & cricket!
You won’t believe what we found
21/08/2008

While the world remains far from really bringing global peace and security, global bodies like UN, its allies or even the International Criminal Court (ICC), remain very far from their objectives.

ICC was established by a few host countries after agreeing to a Rome statute in 1998 with a purpose to examine severe crimes and genocides. The report card is that they failed to do so [deadly civil war in Congo, gender-based crimes in Uganda... nothing was considered]. It strived to punish Al-Bashir (left, current Uganda President) for genocides in Darfur but failed again. ICC has failed thoroughly in the last decade; but it is not alone to blame. US has never favoured the ICC. It withdrew support quite early from the Rome treaty. Whenever ICC tried to punish some of the wanted criminals, including top US Army officers [either alone or in collaboration with the UN Security Council], US destroyed the proposals using its veto power. Most of ICC’s permanent members did the same for their interest. Since inception, while China used its veto power 6 times, UK, France, US and Russia have used it 32, 18, 81 and 122 times respectively. Why does ICC exist then? To play cricket we guess [What? It’s not the same?!].
