In fulfilment of his campaign pledge, President Barrow assured Gambians and the rest of the world that the small west African country would  remain a signatory to the treaty establishing the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Barrow gave the assurance after a meeting with the EU commissioner for international co-operation and development, Neven Mimica, thus reversing an earlier decision taken by former President Jammeh who instituted formal proceedings to withdraw the Gambia from the ICC last November.

President Jammeh first announced plans to pull out of the International Criminal Court in October, deriding the Hague court as the “International Caucasian Court for the persecution and humiliation of people of colour, especially Africans.”
