South Africa has formally revoked its controversial decision to leave the International Criminal Court following last month's High Court ruling that such a move would be unconstitutional.Notice of Pretoria's decision to end the withdrawal process was posted on the U.N.'s treaty website this week, although it does not necessarily spell the end of its bid to leave the Hague-based court.Although Pretoria complied with the court ruling, this week's decision to cancel the withdrawal process may only be a temporary reprieve, with the government expected to table a bill in parliament to win approval for South Africa's departure from the court.Late last year, The Gambia had notified the U.N. it was withdrawing from the ICC in a process which was swiftly reversed under the government of new President Adama Barrow, who took office in January.
