Kenyan lawyer takes State of Israel, Jews to Hague over Jesus' death
A Kenyan lawyer has filed a petition with the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, suggesting that the trial and crucifixion of Jesus Christ was unlawful, and The State of Israel among others should be held responsible, Kenyan news outlet the Nairobian reported on Friday. Dola Indidis, a lawyer and former spokesman of the Kenyan Judiciary is reportedly attempting to sue Tiberius (Emperor of Rome 42 BC-37AD), Pontius Pilate, a selection of Jewish elders, King Herod, the Republic of Italy and the State of Israel. "Evidence today is on record in the bible, and you cannot discredit the bible," Indidis told Kenyan Citizen News.
Yes, those he suggests should have been convicted during the original trial have not been alive for more than 2000 years, however Indidis insists that the government for whom they acted can and should still be held responsible. “I filed the case because it’s my duty to uphold the dignity of Jesus and I have gone to the ICJ to seek justice for the man from Nazareth,” Indidis told the Nairobian. “His selective and malicious prosecution violated his human rights through judicial misconduct, abuse of office bias and prejudice.” ... When asked about the case, a spokesperson from the IJC told legal news website Legal Cheek, "The ICJ has no jurisdiction for such a case. The ICJ settles disputes between states. It is not even theoretically possible for us to consider this case."

Kenyan lawyer on quixotic quest to nullify trial of Jesus
"The conviction of Jesus by Pontius Pilate may be the most famous court verdict ever — and perhaps the most consequential, since it led to Christ’s crucifixion and the founding of a global religion. Dola Indidis, a Roman Catholic, is petitioning the International Court of Justice, based at The Hague, to nullify Jesus’ conviction and death sentence. Now a Kenyan lawyer wants to overturn Pilate’s decision, though he wants to keep the faith that flowed from it. ... Indidis first brought his case before the Kenyan High Court in
Nairobi in 2007, but the court refused to hear it, saying it lacked
jurisdiction. Now he is turning to the International Court of Justice, often
referred to as the World Court, which is best known for ruling on
territorial disputes between members of the United Nations."
Ah! Catholic... please remember that Catholicism is a false religion and the Spirit is not in them. Therefore they would have a darkened mind and no understanding of His word or His ways. Well anyway, (Ephesians 4:17-18).
