African leaders have thrown their weight behind a Kenyan proposal pushing for a pullout from the International Criminal Court.

President Idriss Deby of Chad, who doubles as African Union chairman while speaking at the two-day summit, faulted the court for focusing its efforts on African leaders.

?Elsewhere in the world, many things happen- many flagrant violations of human rights- but nobody cares,? Deby said on Sunday.


According to him, the decision is a ?proposal?for the AU to develop a road map for the withdrawal of African nations?, a Kenyan presidential statement read.

The war crimes trial of former Ivory Coast president Laurent Gbagbo began last week, rekindling a bitter row across Africa over the international justice system.

Set up in 2002 as the last resort to try war criminals and perpetrators of genocide never tried at home, the ICC has opened probes involving eight nations, all of them African: Kenya, Ivory Coast, Libya, Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, Uganda and Mali. The AU, led in particular by Kenya, has accused the court of unfairly targeting Africans for prosecution as the majority of its cases come from the continent.

This included a failed case to try Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and a faltering case against his deputy William Ruto, for allegedly masterminding deadly post-election violence in the east African country in 2007-2008 in which some 1,200 people died.


?We refuse to be carried along in a vehicle that has strayed off course to the detriment of our sovereignty, security and dignity as Africans,? Kenyatta said in a statement.
