Himbara allied himself with genocidal forces, and now he is trying to claim that others are do the same. No Himbara, no one else plays allies with Genocidal forces or attempt to benefit from them in any way.
Himbara is also having difficulties differentiating the ICJ and the ICC. Below is a small guide, probably high school level stuff but I will try to keep it simple for David Himbara.
The International Court of Justice acts as a world court. The Court’s jurisdiction is twofold: it decides, in accordance with international law, disputes of a legal nature that are submitted to it by States (jurisdiction in contentious cases); and it gives advisory opinions on legal questions at the request of the organs of the United Nations, specialized agencies or one related organization authorized to make such a request (advisory jurisdiction).
Def from ICJ’s website
In simpler terms, the court has jurisdiction in contentious cases and has advisory jurisdiction. If two countries have a dispute about their border demarcation, they can ask the ICJ to adjudicate.
The jurisdiction of the Court shall be limited to the most serious crimes of concern to the international community as a whole. The Court has jurisdiction in accordance with this Statute with respect to the following crimes:
- The crime of genocide;
- Crimes against humanity;
- War crimes;
- The crime of aggression.
From Rome Status
So, can someone please tell the RNC Liar in Chief that when a court says it has no jurisdiction, it simply means you went to the wrong court. Claiming that the wrong court has no jurisdiction due to trickery is laughable.
Rwanda is not a signatory of the ICC Rome statutes, a flawed legal tool that most African countries now consider an oppressive tool.
