ICC withdrawal: ANC says SA govt has to consult the party first before it reconsiders
Citing notes from his closing remarks, it reported he said the ANC needed to consider a strategic retreat from its position in view of the fact the rest of the continent had abandoned this position, leaving South Africa isolated.
The paper also quoted party secretary-general Ace Magashule who said there was no such decision to backtrack on the resolution.
Mabe said the matter was likely to be discussed further when reports speaking to global dynamics were adopted.
He told News24 the ICC was discussed following comments attributed to Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng supporting Israel during a webinar hosted by The Jerusalem Post in June.
At the time, Mabe said the chief justice had entered the arena of political commentary, which could make him vulnerable in the future.
