African states in bid to withdraw from ICC.

Africa’s relationship with the International Criminal Court faces an acid test today (Saturday), with 54 heads of state and government holding an unprecedented summit on the global body.

On the table for the continent on the ICC — which has been accused of targeting African leaders — are three key proposals, according to sources.
The most drastic — mass withdrawal from the Rome Statute — is expected to feature, though Kenya’s
Foreign Secretary Amina Abdalla insists Kenya has not made such proposal.  Of the 112 signatories to the Rome Statute, 34 are African, the largest single block.
The other two proposals at the summit are a deferral of the cases facing President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto, and a push to reform the ICC.
President Kenyatta and his deputy, Ruto, insist on their innocence.
