South Africa will withdraw from the Hague-based International Criminal Court (ICC), media reports in Johannesburg said on October 21, 2016, sparking rapid criticism from rights bodies. A document confirming the withdrawal plan, signed by International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, was published by public broadcaster SABC's United Nations correspondent.
