TRUMP AUTHORISES SANCTIONS OVER INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT AFGHANISTAN WAR CRIMES CASE

On 11 June, the New York Times and others reported an Executive Order as the latest attack by the Trump Administration against international organisations, treaties and agreements.  It has authorised economic sanctions and travel restrictions against court workers directly involved in investigating American troops and intelligence officials for possible war crimes in Afghanistan without US consent, for being “an attack on the rights of the American people and threaten to infringe upon our national sovereignty”.
