Klishas on the ICC: a legislative reaction to this quasi-court would be redundant



Banning the activities of the International Criminal Court in Russia is an unnecessary step, said Andrey Klishas, ​​head of the Federation Council’s Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building. This is how he commented on today’s proposal by State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin.

Klishas also called the ICC a corrupt and incompetent quasi-court.

“The ICC is a fictitious institution, its decisions are insignificant, it does not create legal consequences for Russia,” he told TASS.

Recall that on March 17, the ICC issued arrest warrants for Vladimir Putin and children’s ombudsman Maria Lvova-Belova. Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the decision of this body does not affect the work of the head of state and his administration.

Meanwhile, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation opened a criminal case against the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Karim Ahmad Khan. The department said there was no reason to hold the President of Russia and the Children’s Ombudsman criminally liable. The United Kingdom has also announced the existence of absolute immunity for heads of state.

And EU Justice and Rule of Law Commissioner Didier Reynders said last year the EU paid the ICC €10 million for its activities in Ukraine.
