Letter to the Editor: Distrust of international courts

Dr. Hoff is out of step with facts on the ground. (“America must become member of International Criminal Court” Commentary, May 1) There is a new sheriff in town. And he refuses to jettison national sovereignty in favor of unaccountable international courts and unduly elected judges.

Compare the TPP, which was a similar effort to allow non-American judges to penalize American citizens.

Our judicial system assumes innocence and puts the burden of proof on the accuser. International criminal courts cannot be trusted in this and other legal concepts.
