Arrest warrants for Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and Russia's Commissioner for Children's Rights, Maria Lvova-Belova, will remain in effect for the rest of their lives until they appear in court.
The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Karim Khan, said this, writes the BBC.
According to Khan, the court initially planned to keep the arrest warrants secret, but decided to make them public to try to stop further crimes. As the prosecutor noted, "Children cannot be treated as war booty, they cannot be deported."
"He will remain a suspected criminal until he is brought to trial or until he is brought to trial and acquitted. That seems extremely unlikely, so he will remain a suspected criminal for the rest of his life," he said.
