A Kenyan lawyer, Dola Indidis is fighting for Jesus. He has petitioned the International Court of Justice, arguing that the trial and crucifixion of Jesus Christ was unlawful.
He said the State of Israel among others should be held responsible for the unlawful crucifixion.
Kenyan news outlet, The Nairobian, reported recently that Indidis, a lawyer and former spokesman of the Kenyan Judiciary is suing Tiberius (Emperor of Rome, 42 BCE-37 CE), Pontius Pilate, a selection of Jewish elders, King Herod, the Republic of Italy and the State of Israel.
He was quoted as saying: “Evidence today is on record in the Bible, and you cannot discredit the Bible”
Reminded that those he was suing are all dead since the event occurred more than 2000 years ago, Indidis insisted that the government for whom they acted can and should still be held responsible.
His words: “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.”
Indidid is challenging the mode of questioning used during Jesus’s 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.
Reports said that the case was first filed in the High Court in Nairobi but was rejected. Indidis then approached the ICJ.
