After having his initial lawsuit thrown out, a Kenyan lawyer, Dola Indidis has taken the Israeli government to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), over the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
According to Kenya Daily, Indidis intends to use the Bible as evidence in his pursuit of justice over the death of Jesus Christ who was killed by the Jews over 2000 years ago and is confident of winning the case.
The fiery lawyer renewed his lawsuit in March 2017 with the petition to the IJC and wants Israel to be held responsible for the trial, crucifixion, and death of Jesus Christ on the cross.
According to court papers, Indidis, a former spokesman of the Kenyan Judiciary, accused the state of Israel of atrocities committed against Jesus Christ during the ancient times and urged the court to hold the country accountable for the inhuman torture, pain, and disgrace Jesus Christ was put through at that time.
Defending his move before journalists, Indidis said:
“Evidence today is on record in the Bible, and you cannot discredit the Bible. 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.”
The controversial lawyer also involved other parties in his legal suit and among those he included in the lawsuit are Pontius Pilate, King Herod, the Roman Emperor Tiberius, Italy and a number of Jewish elders.
In his petition, Indidis also exacted the kind of questioning used during Jesus’s trial, questioning, hearing, and sentencing.
