Russia Adds International Criminal Court President to Wanted List Amid Growing Tensions

Russia has recently added Piotr Hofmanski, the President of the International Criminal Court (ICC) based in The Hague, to its list of wanted individuals. However, the Russian authorities have not provided any specific information regarding the charges or allegations against Hofmanski in Moscow.

The Russian Ministry of the Interior has only described him as “wanted in the context of a criminal investigation,” according to reports from state news agencies Tass and Ria Novosti.

In the past, the ICC issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin, accusing him of involvement in the deportation of children from Ukraine and war crimes. Moscow vehemently denies these allegations.

Notably, last month, Moscow imposed sanctions on Karim Khan, the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, after previously placing him on a wanted list. This move reflects escalating tensions between Russia and the ICC over allegations of criminal activities.
