South Africa 'must get out of ICC'

The International Criminal Court "is dangerous" and South Africa should withdraw from it, ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe said yesterday.

Mantashe was defending the government's decision not to arrest indicted Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.

"If I was in government, I would say: 'Give notice, get out of that, it was not what was envisioned. It is a tool in the hands of the powerful to destroy the weak and it is a court that is focusing on Africa, Eastern Europe and Middle East'," Mantashe said on Talk Radio 702.

Zuma is to answer questions on Bashir's departure in the National Assembly today.
