Former President John Dramani Mahama this afternoon met with the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda, in Munich, Germany.
The bilateral meeting, which took place on the side line of the ongoing gathering of global leaders at the Munich Security Conference 2019, focussed on relations between the Court and Africa, how to improve the confidence of the African continent and people in the court and issues of human rights around the world.
Madam Bensouda congratulated Mr. Mahama on his role in consolidating democracy in Africa and his work as Chairman of the prestigious Tana High Level Forum on Security in Africa.
She expressed sadness that the work of the ICC has over the years been viewed with suspicion by some member states of the African Union.
