Zambia to inform the African Union that it will not pull out of the ICC


Zambia has resolved to maintain its membership with the International Criminal Court (ICC). Minister of Justice Given Lubinda has said that over 91 percent of the 3,489 submissions made in the 30 districts across the country were against the pull out. Mr. Lubinda has told Parliament that the public consultation which commenced on March 27th and concluded on April 20th involved written and oral submissions by Civil Society Organizations and private individuals among other stakeholders. The Minister said stakeholders in their submissions noted that Zambia needs to make its own decision as a sovereign state and not be forced by other countries.
