After the issuance of an arrest warrant for Putin, the main prosecutor of the ICC found himself on the list of wanted persons in Russia – World – News

The International Criminal Court (ICC) said on Saturday that it would not be deterred by the fact that its chief prosecutor, Karim Khan, was placed on a wanted list in Russia. He found himself on it after an arrest warrant was issued for Russian President Vladimir Putin in connection with the illegal deportation of Ukrainian children.

“The ICC considers these measures unacceptable. The court will continue to unflinchingly exercise its legal mandate to ensure accountability for the most serious crimes,” the court, based in The Hague, Netherlands, said in a statement.

A photo of British lawyer Khan appeared on the database of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs on Friday. A note with it states that he was born on March 30, 1970 in Edinburgh, Scotland, but does not specify the charges against him.

In a statement on Saturday, the ICC said it was “aware of and deeply concerned about the unjustified and unjustified coercive measures … by the authorities of the Russian Federation”. In a statement, he called on the 123 states that ratified the treaty establishing the ICC to “step up efforts to protect this court, its officials and staff.”

On March 17, the ICC issued an arrest warrant for Putin and the Russian Commissioner for Children’s Rights Maria Lvovova-Belova. According to the court, there are legitimate reasons to believe that they are responsible for the illegal deportation of the population, including children, from the occupied regions of Ukraine to Russia, which is considered a war crime. Russia is not a member of the ICC and does not recognize the jurisdiction of this court.
