(THE HAGUE) ICC REPORT: US Government to revoke Executive Order 13928, ending sanctions against the ICC Prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, and a senior staff member of her office, Phakiso Mochochoko, as well as visa restrictions on certain their personnel #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.05: The International Criminal Court (“ICC” or the “Court”) who is mindful that the United States has traditionally made important contributions to the cause of international criminal justice. The Court stands ready to reengage with the US in the continuation of that tradition based on mutual respect and constructive engagement:

‘The ICC welcomes the decision by the US Government ending sanctions and visa restrictions against ICC personnel’ Today, President Biden revoked Executive Order 13928 on “Blocking Property of Certain Persons Associated with the International Criminal Court (ICC),” ending the threat and imposition of economic sanctions and visa restrictions in connection with the Court: As a result, the sanctions imposed by the previous administration against ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda and Phakiso Mochochoko, the Head of the Jurisdiction, Complementarity and Cooperation Division of the Office of the Prosecutor, have been lifted. The Department of State also terminated the separate 2019 policy on visa restrictions on certain ICC personnel. These decisions reflect our assessment that the measures adopted were inappropriate and ineffective’

We are encouraged that States Parties to the Rome Statute are considering a broad range of reforms to help the Court prioritize its resources and to achieve its core mission of serving as a court of last resort in punishing and deterring atrocity crimes. We think this reform is a worthwhile effort:

We continue to disagree strongly with the ICC’s actions relating to the Afghanistan and Palestinian situations: We maintain our longstanding objection to the Court’s efforts to assert jurisdiction over personnel of non-States Parties such as the United States and Israel. We believe, however, that our concerns about these cases would be better addressed through engagement with all stakeholders in the ICC process rather than through the imposition of sanctions:

Our support for the rule of law, access to justice, and accountability for mass atrocities are important U.S. national security interests that are protected and advanced by engaging with the rest of the world to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow: Since the Nuremberg and Tokyo Tribunals after World War II, U.S. leadership meant that history permanently recorded fair judgments issued by international tribunals against justly convicted defendants from the Balkans to Cambodia, to Rwanda and elsewhere. We have carried on that legacy by supporting a range of international, regional, and domestic tribunals, and international investigative mechanisms for Iraq, Syria, and Burma, to realize the promise of justice for victims of atrocities. We will continue to do so through cooperative relationships:

3 April 2021


In the fulfilment of its independent and impartial judicial mandate, the Court acts strictly within the confines of the Rome Statute, as a Court of last resort, in a manner complementary to national jurisdictions. The Court relies on the support and cooperation of its States Parties, representing all regions of the world, and of the international community more broadly.

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON – Nov.15 – Major changes to immigration policy could be under-way in the United States.

White House administration officials and advocates are reporting that the president will announce unilateral action sometime next week. CCTV America’s Jessica Stone reported this story from Washington, D.C.

Immigration advocate Maru Mora Villalpando came to the United States 22 years ago from Mexico City on a tourist visa and stayed. Though she and her daughter share a close relationship, they do not share U.S. citizenship. She fears deportation and imagines how it would feel to have her “illegal” status lifted. 

“I could plan for her future and my future. I think she would be so happy,” she said.

Instead of remaining hidden, Villalpando has become one of a chorus of voices pressuring Washington to pass measures to create a pathway to citizenship for people like her. 

“When people say we don’t follow the rules, there are no paths for us to become legalized,” Villalpando said.

White House officials said Obama is poised to circumvent the U.S. Congress, and delay deportations for parents and spouses of U.S. citizens and those brought here before age 16.

` No Official Notification has Arrived in `Moscow ‘ about `European Union ‘ plans to `Issue Visa’s to Crimean Resident’s ‘

#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – March 30 (Interfax) – No official notification has arrived in Moscow about the European Union’s plans to issue Schengen visas to residents of Crimea exclusively through Kyiv, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

“No decision has been made yet, as far as I know. But speculation of this sort has gotten round, in a rather original manner, I would say.

Some claim that rules should be introduced, requiring each Crimean applicant for the Schengen visa to travel to Ukraine, visit the consular service and get the visa after producing the Ukrainian passport,” Lavrov said in an interview with the Voskresnoye Vremya program on Russia’s Channel One.

“Statements are also being made that European Union travellers can visit Ukraine without a visa and that Ukraine has unilaterally offered the visa-free regime to European Union countries.

But the visa regime holds for Crimea,” he said.

“Such approaches are being discussed publicly and seriously,” Lavrov said.
