Earlier this year, Sudanese leader Omar al-Bashir was allowed to leave the country despite a request from the court that he be arrested.
The North Gauteng High Court had also ruled that al-Bashir be kept in South Africa.
The ANC’s International Relations Commission head, Obed Bapela, made the announcement at the press briefing earlier today.
“NGC has just resolved that South Africa should withdraw from the international court. However, only after we have followed certain processes.”
