ICJ Prosecutor Calls for Arrest of Putin at BRICS Summit

The International Criminal Court’s chief prosecutor, Karim Khan, has stated that South Africa should “do the right thing” and follow international law if Vladimir Putin attends the upcoming BRICS summit .

The ICC has issued an arrest warrant for Putin over alleged war crimes in Ukraine. As a signatory to the ICC, South Africa may be obliged to arrest Putin if he sets foot in the country.

However, the South African government has said it will extend its Diplomatic Immunity and Privileges Act to all international officials who plan to attend the summit. This move is seen as an attempt to pave the way for Putin to travel to South Africa despite the arrest warrant.

The situation is developing and more information is expected to become available. Stay tuned for further updates on this story.
