Dola Indidis, a Roman Catholic and a lawyer is suing the state of Israel, 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 in the International Court of Justice in the Hague over the trial of Jesus Christ that took place over 2,000 years ago.
The Kenyan lawyer is asking the court to declare the trial of Jesus as null and void, because it was not conducted in a fair manner based on the principles of a fair trial.
Indidis who is a former spokesperson for Kenya’s Judiciary says, “I want a declaratory judgment that the trial judgment and sentence entered were badly done and therefore null and void.
“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.
“His selective and malicious prosecution violated his human rights through judicial misconduct, abuse of office, bias and prejudice.”
In 2007, according to reports, Indidis had first filed his case on behalf of the ‘Friends of Jesus’ in Kenya’s High Court in Nairobi, but the court ruled it had no jurisdiction.
He then went ahead to file his case at the United Nation’s top judicial body in The Hague.
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) which has dismissed the case because it is out of its jurisdiction said through its spokesperson: “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.”
