Bonkers Kenyan lawyer supplies a list of villains he wants prosecuted for Jesus’ death

A CATHOLIC Kenyan lawyer and former spokesman of Kenya’s judiciary has filed a petition with the International Court of Justice in The Hague, suggesting that the trial and crucifixion of Jesus Christ was unlawful, and the Israel among others should be held responsible.

Surprisingly, the name of the Almighty – who orchestrated the whole messy affair – is missing from Dola Indidis’ list of baddies, which includes Tiberius (emperor of Rome, 42 BCE-37 CE); Pontius Pilate; a selection of Jewish elders; King Herod; Italy and Israel.

Evidence against this lot, insists Indidi:

 Is on record in the Bible, and you cannot discredit the Bible.

Although the individuals named have been dead for over 2,000 years, Indidis insists that the government for whom they acted can and should still be held responsible for deicide.

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.

Indidis reportedly named the states of Italy and Israel in the lawsuit because – upon the attainment of independence – the two countries incorporated the laws of the Roman Empire, in force at the time of the crucifixion.

He is challenging the mode of questioning used during Jesus’ trial, prosecution, hearing and sentencing; the form of punishment meted out to him while undergoing judicial proceedings and the substance of the information used to convict him.

The case was first filed in the High Court in Nairobi but was rejected. Indidis then applied to have it heard at the ICJ.

Indidis says he wants to establish what crime Jesus was charged with and prays that the court decides:

That the proceedings before the Roman courts were a nullity in law, for they did not conform to the rule of law at the material time and any time thereafter. Some of those present spat in his face, struck him with their fists, slapped him, taunted him, and pronounced him worthy of death.

When Jesus died, Indidis insists, he was not given an opportunity to be heard.

I am suing as a friend.

Indidis insisted on the validity of his case, saying:

I know with a matter of fact and truth we have a good case with a high probability of success and I hope it is done in my lifetime.

When asked about the case, an official from the ICJ 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.

    It is a shame this loony hasn’t had his day in court because first he would have to prove that Jesus actually existed in the first place and so be killed; obviously being no evidence, he can’t.

    “…and you cannot discredit the Bible” Hahahahaha, oh yes, very funny, spoken like a true crackpot.

    Mr. Indidis clearly isn’t one of the more regular Freethinker visitors.

    Well, the Roman empire is still very much with us, so yeah; go for it. (We call it the Roman Catholic Church these days by the way…)

    If it is justice he wants for dead folks he better get in line behind the 6 million Jews that the big sky daddy, while having a brain fart, forgot to protect in WW2…..etc etc

    Me thinks the ICJ has bigger fish to fry.

    It’s a History channel movie plot isn’t it?

  7. LakeTonkaMark says:

    How great would it be, if upon forcing the issue on this lawsuit, the court decides that there isnotenough evidence to prove Jesus existed?

    Talk about an uproar!

    Because of his misguided love for Jesus, he becomes the person who instigates a ruling that he never existed. (nice)

    I pray it happens…

    As long as he uses his own money and resources to pay for his court costs, then no worries, but if he uses some of that foreign aid that UKIP are currently banging on about, then this will do nothing but aid the fascists of our country.

  9. Har Davids says:

    If an omnipotent ‘god’ allows mere humans to kill him, it’s suicide by Roman in my book. And can a divine being, who’s also a genocidal serial killer according to the Bible, have human rights?

  10. IikagenBoB says:

    Ah yes… a nut.

  11. Chris Hughes says:

    I doubt that hearsay evidence is admissible in Kenya’s courts, and since the Bible is nothing more than hearsay…

    Then I’m going to Sauron to the ICJ! Bastard created the One Ring and persecuted the whole of the Shire!

    * “take Sauron”

    @Maggie: You posted a variant on what I was going to post but didn’t get round to it – good job.

  15. Broga says:

    I thought Jesus (assuming he existed) needed to die so that the rest of humanity could be saved. This man is another example of how Christian belief addles the brain.

  17. Graham Martin-Royle says:

    But jebus isn’t dead (or so I’ve been told) so what crime has been committed?

  18. Brian Jordan says:

    Dead? Even if the man can prove Jesus was real, he’d still have to prove he was killed – against the evidence of those who saw him later and of course the millions who proclaim “Jesus Lives!”

  19. barriejohn says:

    Yes, the Jews are guilty of the death of Messiah – the Bible tells us so:

  20. Trevor Blake says:

    Christians who object to blaming the Jews for the death of Christ must explain why their Bible states the Jews are to blame for the death of Christ…

    http://ovo127.com/2010/08/20/trevor-blake-biblical-anti-semitism/

    The question of whether or not Jews today are still to blame is answered in the Bible: “Then answered all the people, and said, His [Jesus’] blood be on us [the Jews], and on our children.” (Mathew 27:25)

    … and so it is Mr. Indidis who is is attentive to the Bible, not his Christian critics.

    We atheist critics, meanwhile, look with contempt on the whole lot.

  21. David Anderson says:

    Jebus is alive and living in a WW11 bomber on the moon with his buddy Elvis. Norma Jean is also there to make the samiches.

  22. Matt+Westwood says:

    You do all realise that the argument “Those nasty Jews killed our lickle bay-bee Jeezus” has been used for a millennium and a half as an excuse to persecute Jews? Hitler didn’t start it, it’s been going on for a lot longer than that.

    I’m sure there are international laws that this Indidis guy can himself be crucified by.

    Fucking hell…..the lunatics are on the path

    If he wins the case he can, I guess, file a lawsuit against the Italian and Israeli states for compensation? Stands to make a pretty penny. But then why stop there? Joan of Arc? The whole panoply of xaitain martyrs – there must be thousands by now! What a lucrative, shinning path this guy has found!
