Cotton Statement on Sanctions Against ICC Prosecutor

 

Washington, D.C. — Following reports that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced sanctions against International Criminal Court chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement:

 

“The United States will not tolerate political attacks against its servicemembers by the ICC, a court which has no jurisdiction over Americans. By sanctioning prosecutor Bensouda, the administration is defending American sovereignty and ensuring the safety and security of our citizens.”
