Resigned Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi said Friday that he sent a dossier to the International Criminal Court to look into the terror case of ex-Information Minister Michel Samaha.Rifi said he presented the case to ICC chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda late last month. The minister had announced last month his intention to refer the case of Samaha to the ICC, while also calling on Canadian authorities to get involved. Rifi outlined Samaha's case in detail, and noted that the ex-minister is a Canadian citizen, which makes him eligible for prosecution by the ICC.
