African States Threaten to Leave ICC

Some African states that have signed the Rome Statute to the ICC are now considering leaving the ICC.  Controversy over the ICC has started to accumulate over the years from some states that the ICC of Western Imperialism, anti-african bias, and neo-colonialism.  Burundi has recently passed a bill signed by the President to withdraw from the ICC, but hasn’t written a letter yet to the Secretary General to notify him of their withdrawal.  Negative influence from Libya and Sudan have also impacted African states stance on the ICC.  However there is still strong support from other African states such as Botswana and Democratic Republic of Congo to stay with the ICC.
