OFFICIAL STATEMENT 037
Revocation of sanctions by United States on ICC
05/04/2021
Spain welcomes the decision take by the President of the United States, Joseph R. Biden Jr., on 2 April, revoking the sanctions imposed on certain public servants of the International Criminal Court, including the prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, and the Head of the Jurisdiction, Complementarity and Cooperation Division, Phakiso Mochochoko.

Spain shares with the United States the aim of judicially prosecuting the authors of atrocious crimes and considers that the International Criminal Court constitutes a fundamental element in achieving a universal and independent jurisdiction that contributes to meeting this goal. Spain actively backed the establishment of the ICC and contributes to its reinforcement through the Parliamentary Assembly Board of States Parties, which it is currently a member of.

The lifting of these sanctions is yet another step towards multilateralism which, on a complementary basis with its Member States, avoids untold human suffering, as proclaimed in the preamble to the United Nations Charter.
