The Attorney General (AG) and Minister of Justice, Godfred Yeboah Dame, says Ghana is and will remain committed to the principles and work of the International Criminal Court (ICC), which exist primarily to fight impunity everywhere in the world.
Ghana, according to the Attorney General, is governed on the basis of respect for human rights and thus has no difficulty at all in supporting the work of the International Criminal Court.
Addressing an international conference held in Dakar, Senegal from 23 to 25 May, 2022, to celebrate twenty (20) years of the establishment of the ICC, Godfred Dame, said Ghana’s unwavering support for the ICC, is anchored on her own respect for the rule of law and respect for the fundamental human rights of all her citizens and humanity at large.
“The nation’s recognition and support for the work of the ICC are part of her cherished tradition and culture in the promotion and protection of international human rights and international courts set up with the object of consolidating such values”.
“Ghana was the 6th country to sign the Rome Statute. She was also one of the first countries to ratify the treaty when the Ghanaian Parliament voted unanimously for ratification of the treaty” the AG, Godfred Dame said.
