ICC asked to investigate Namibia's founding president over the disappearance of thousands





A Namibian human rights group said on Tuesday it had filed a request with the International Criminal Court to investigate the country's founding president over the disappearance of thousands of people.

In its submission to the International Criminal Court (ICC), the National Society for Human Rights (NSHR) accuses Sam Nujoma of gross human rights violations as well as responsibility for the disappearance of about 4 200 people during his country's struggle for independence.

"The ICC sent us a letter earlier this month that they would decide on our submission," said NHSR executive director Phil ya Nangoloh.
