Gambia has officially withdrawn itself from the International Criminal Court .
It is now the third African nation to submit its withdrawal letter from the
International Criminal Court (ICC) to the United Nations.

The Information
minister Sheriff Baba Bojang, who announced the withdrawal late on
Tuesday on national television, said the acronym ICC stood for
“International Caucasian Court.”
The court focused on “the persecution and humiliation of people of color, especially Africans,” Bojang added.
Daily Trust reported that Gambia’s
withdrawal comes several days after South Africa announced it would
leave the ICC, saying its membership hampered its efforts to resolve
conflicts in Africa.
Earlier this month, Burundi’s government also decided to quit the court in The Hague.
Assembly of States Parties president Sidiki Kaba, who is also the
justice minister of Senegal, Monday called the withdrawals a “watershed
moment” for justice.
Since the ICC entered into force in July 2002, only Africans have been on trial
