Rendering Hypocritical Accusations of War Crimes

In 2006, the ICC issued a warrant for the arrest of Bosco Ntaganda, the alleged former deputy chief of the general staff of the Patriotic Forces for the Liberation of Congo. He is is currently on trial for a number of charges, including 13 counts of war crimes. Yet, an article recently released by Press TV has confirmed that Britain “approved the sale of arms to Israel worth £7 million in the six months before its offensive on Gaza last summer, including drone parts, combat aircraft and helicopters.”

Ignoring French Crimes Against Humanity

William Samoei Ruto, a politician of Kenya, and Joshua Arap Sang, the current director of operations of Kass FM, a broadcast radio station based out of Nairobi, Kenya, are in the midst of a trial for allegedly committing war crimes. Yet, the ICC has yet to acknowledge the allegations of sexual assault that have been brought against French soldiers in the Central Republic of Africa. An article written by Rick Noack, a foreign affairs writer for The Washington Post, sheds light on the situation in which the United Nations attempted to hide the fact that French troops were said to have abused children in the Central Republic of Africa while on a U.N. peacekeeping mission. Instances of sexual assault have also been an issue in Haiti, Liberia, Congo and South Sudan.
