South Africa recently suspended its decision to withdraw from the International Criminal Court (ICC), although President Jacob Zuma of South Africa has since said that his administration still intends to withdraw from the court.
Many expect the South African Legislature to create a legal pathway to withdraw. The ICC was established 15 years ago to prosecute war crimes and crimes against humanity and now has 123 member states. President Zuma says the court is prosecuting mostly African countries, which shows it is biased against Africa.
Two other African countries, Gambia and Burundi, have also tried to leave the ICC, although Gambia has suspended its plan to withdraw. The United States, which has been critical of the ICC since its beginning, is not a member.
