On Oct. 19, South African President Jacob Zuma's government delivered documents to the United Nations signaling its intent to withdraw from the International Criminal Court.Withdrawing from the ICC is no simple matter.Thus, the ICC will be allowed to complete any prosecutions that it begins within the next year. In South Africa, the Zuma government's decision to withdraw from the ICC is legally questionable. While the country's status as an ICC member state would end, the government would still be bound to cooperate with the ICC in accordance with the Implementation Act that the South African Parliament adopted in 2002 .When the government announced its ICC decision, it also said it would withdraw its Constitutional Court appeal, suggesting that Zuma is hitting back through other means at those who have embarrassed him through the judiciary.
