NPP Condemns ICC ruling

By David Seedee

MONROVIA, Nov. 7(LINA)-The former ruling National Patriotic Party (NPP) has condemned the ruling of the International Criminal Court(ICC) in The Hague upholding the 50 years sentence of ex-Liberian president Charles Taylor.

Taylor, who was earlier sentenced to 50 years in jail for war crimes and crimes against humanity for his role in the Sierra Leone war, appealed the verdict but the Appeal Court on September 26, 2013 upheld the sentence.

In a press statement issued here November 5, the NPP said the trial was characterized by sentiments and flaws, thereby sparking huge legal debate around the word.

The NPPsaid America and Great Britain continue to commit excesses in an attempt to dominate the lives of every weak, poor and black nation with impunity.

The party warmed that this dastardly duplicity and intrigue perpetrated by these individuals and States to dehumanize the black race and subject them to their whims and caprices must be stopped.

The party called on the African Union, ECOWAS and the Arab League, which it described as voices of destitute nations, to mount political, economic and diplomatic pressure in order to secure reprieve to the ignoble decisions of the ICC judges and save the creditability of International Justice.

The party is meanwhile calling on the National Legislature to enact a law to abrogate Liberia’s membership of the ICC.
