ICC prosecutor meets with Afghans on war crimes claims

The outgoing prosecutor of the International Criminal Court met with a high-level Afghan delegation to discuss allegations of war crimes in the country, the court said yesterday. Fatou Bensouda met with the delegation led by Afghanistan's foreign and justice ministers on Friday in The Hague, where the court is based, and the day-long discussions were "productive," the court said in a statement. Friday's meeting was organised following Afghanistan's request in March last year for the court to defer its investigation, the court statement said. The ICC is investigating alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Afghanistan since 2003 by all sides.
