Once again international organizations apply their laws as they wish or as it suits them, this according to their interests.

AS MIGHT THE INFORMATION BELOW BE correct, we can not in any way behave in this way, namely performing acts outside the law, even if we are called ICC, UN etc. ...... because none of these organizations is above the constitution of each member state, as stipulated in the laws governing these organizations. Are we at the dawn of a new international dictatorship? And as though this is done in a magic wand, why the ICC did not investigated abuses committed by Allassane Dramane Ouattara, Guillaume Soro, Cherif Ousmane and all the other warlords in 2002 in the north of Ivory Coast, given that at the time the government signed the recognition of the jurisdiction of the ICC (for investigation). Should we take it as a double standard?

============= Alert Alert Alert =========== General mobilization! @ All patriotic resistant, all lover of Peace and Justice wherever you are, Mobilize yourselves! ICC is to send technical mission to Abidjan on Monday for the transfer GBAGBO! we just have this information, from a confidential source! ================

WHY President Laurent Gbagbo CANNOT BE TRANSFERRED TO THE ICC: Cte d'Ivoire has not ratified the Rome Statute establishing the ICC and it can not do so immediately because of a decision of the Constitutional Council which states that certain provisions of this statute is contrary to our constitution accordance with Article 86. As a result, the ratification will be possible only after revision of the Basic Law, which review may be done by referendum as the relevant constitutional provisions are related to the exercise of presidential term (see section 126 of the Constitution). However, in the absence of ratification of the Rome Statute which created the ICC,it has no jurisdiction over Ivorian citizens. Recognition by the Ivorian government of the jurisdiction of the ICC can not take the place of ratification. It just allows to investigate. Indeed, if the Constitutional Council held that the ratification in the current state of our legislation is not constitutionally possible, it is not a statement of recognition that would be. However, the ratification is only allowed by national representation of Parliament. The requirement of ratification as well as being constitutional is also a measure of good governance because of the principle of separation of powers if the signing of an international convention or treaty by the executive would have been enough to involve a State.
