Kenyan lawyer sues Israel over Jesus’ death

Former Kenyan Judiciary spokesman has petitioned the International Court of Justice in The Hague to annul the trial and death sentence against Jesus Christ, nearly 2000 years ago.

Dola Indidis is also suing Israel, Italy, King Herod, Pontius Pilate, various Jewish “wise men” and the Roman Emperor Tiberius for what he considers an illegal trial which “violated Jesus’ human rights”.

“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,” Indidis told The Nairobian, a Kenyan newspaper.“Evidence today is on record in the Bible, and you cannot discredit the Bible,” the lawyer told a Kenyan website Citizen News.

After failing to convince the Kenyan High Court in Nairobi 2007 to hear the case, Indidis decided to turn to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, even though the institution only rules on territorial disputes between member states of the United Nations.

It’s unclear whether Indidis’s petition has actually been in the Peace Palace, headquarters of the ICJ. According to an ICJ spokesperson, quoted by the AFP news agency, “it’s not even theoretically possible for the court to do the case”.

The lawyer’s petition is based on the interrogation Jesus was submitted to during his trial. The evidence was inconsistent, argues the lawyer, and Christ was tortured during the pre-trial phase. “His selective and malicious prosecution violated his human rights through judicial misconduct, abuse of office bias and prejudice”, he argues.

Jesus of Nazareth was accused of blasphemy against the Jewish religion and sedition, according to Roman law. He was tried on the first count by Caiaphas, the Jewish high priest while the second count was heard by Pontius Pilate, when Judea was an autonomous region within the Roman Empire.

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

He 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.

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,” Indidis told the Kenyan news website Standard Media (SDE).

When Jesus died, Indidis insists, He was not given an opportunity to be heard. “I am suing as a friend,” he said.

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.”

But legal expert, Anthea Roberts, professor of law at Columbia Law School told time.com that he does not believe that Indidis will have much success at The Hague. Indidis has also created a Facebook page on which he asks for donations in support of his cause.

    Its a very good case………I only wonder who will represent the Defendants

  6. Gabs Khuma September 7, 2013 at 8:26 am

    I wonder why he didn’t join baba God as number one defendant since he was the one who offered his son for the salvation of mankind, and by implication sanctioned his death in the first place.

  7. Okey September 7, 2013 at 8:39 am

    In my language they call this one “CHI BUO ANU OZO”!!! What do they call it in your language ? It’s like saying “new dawn new stories”. Some people will prefer to say “wonders will never finish”. Confusion every where….may Fela’s humble soul rest in peace.

  8. Uchebest September 7, 2013 at 8:47 am

    Hahaha…this is a win win case cos the Roman govt in combination of HEROD the EMPEROR violate the fundamental human right of jesus christ by not verifying the claims of the jewish people..How can they set Barnabas the criminal free and cruxify jesus?thats’ injustice..isreali govt should be charge of MAN SLAUTHER and delibrate assalt and denigration cum malination of reputation of JESUS…infact they should pay a huge sum to JESUSs’ family as a compensation.

  9. meniru September 7, 2013 at 9:07 am

    Icheoku asks did anyone know if this lawyer was properly briefed either by Jesus or his estate before commencing this action? Anyway, 419 comes in different shades and dimensions; but is his graymatter functioning optimally?

  10. ngo September 7, 2013 at 10:08 am

    Jesus case has already been settled by His children and compensation has since been paid. I have received my own share of d compensation.

  11. Bernji September 7, 2013 at 10:15 am

    Mr. Lawyer, even the law practitioners of that time could do nothing to help Jesus so you’re still unable to do anything. As he instructed his followers not to fight back when Peter chop off the high priest servant’s ear, that if it was a free for all battle, he would’ve prayed his Father to send him troops from heaven. So thank you for concern, the heavenly court’ll judge the matter right, just watch and pray

  12. Asheshe September 7, 2013 at 10:18 am

    Jesus does not need your services as a lawyer.

  13. Odogwu_Aganaga September 7, 2013 at 10:27 am

    everybody, donate generously!!! the plaintiff is the real “man of God” and is more genuine than all those extortionist-white-cloth wearers who are bilking the credulous and the gullible in the name of same Jesus. today it is “tithe”, tomorrow it is “offertory”; next day it is all kinds of endless collections from rome to agenebode. don’t forget “launching” the proceeds of which is stolen by the greedy and lecherous so-called “priest” who is worse than the high priest who tried Jesus. when you finish this case, please, face those who are stealing and extorting in the name of God/Jesus and living in palatial circumstances–whether they wish to be called eminence, reverend, lordship, all of which are even forbidden by Jesus in the bible. na waa oh! oga come to naijaria and jail all of them no exception. you will soon be receiving my donation.

    This is a stale news. Other newspapers and social media published this more than a month ago. THE SUN should step up!

    • Owerri September 7, 2013 at 2:37 pm

      Thanks my brother Sunny Akhigbe , Sun News is lacking behind these days in quality news reporting. Believe me Sun News paper is not doing well again when one compare her with other media . With all the evidence before me Vanguard and Punch are far ahead of Sun since this year.

    • Owerri September 7, 2013 at 3:28 pm

      Suns Media and all what I observe towards their services are many. I don’t know if other commentators have identified all these hiccups arising from Sun News. (1) Low speed = the inability from suns server to post comments easily is boring compared to other two media I have mentioned. So many times my comments are not delivered due to poor acceptance by her sever and that will mandate me to rewrite and resend again.
      (2) Navigation problem = it takes one several minutes to square up a desired news from Sun this time around once you finish up with a particular news to refresh same problem will reoccur its ugly head but these are no problems at all when I scroll to Vanguard and Punch to worsen my woes they are not my desired news room. Pls, Sun management should re-equip their technology. I still commend them for allowing better and larger space to make comments than others. Thanks while hoping to experience more better quality delivery.

      • Owerri September 7, 2013 at 3:45 pm

        more better quality service delivery pls.

      • Sunny Akhigbe September 7, 2013 at 9:08 pm

        You are right Owerri. I once thought that my iPad had a problem but since I discovered the peculiarity of these problems with the SUN site, I have learnt to endure it as a necessary evil. The other sites you mentioned including The Nation are a delight to visit but I don’t like their comment format; SUN’s is simpler and better. We just want SUN to fix these challenges so that we enjoy our darling newspaper more!

  15. MR.GREEN September 7, 2013 at 10:46 am

    The gray areas here is ,How Jesus was Humiliated at the Trials, even though it was God`s divine Agenda for Mankind Salvation for him to die for us, but the people at that time Humiliated Jesus so much even to slapping him publicly. they acused him of Blasphemy etc and we all know that Jesus never Blasphamed. So i am in support of this Case and i will follow it .

  16. Tarabana September 7, 2013 at 10:59 am

    Fool! A statement directly from d lips of Jesus christ said in Mattew-12:38-40, Jesus himself said to jews that “for as Jonah was 3days and 3nights in d belley of a fish, so i shal be 3days and 3nights in d heart of d earth”. Ie, he cannot die since Jonah did not die.

  17. Eaves dropper September 7, 2013 at 11:05 am

    Jesus has already forgiven those who persecuted him,he even pray to God to forgive the persecutors when he was on the cross.I hope Mr Iddidis is not trying to make money from Jesus?Alot of gospel musicians have been enjoying this priviledges.

  18. peter omelazu September 7, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    If nothing else,at least the gospel is being preached and no one will have any excuse for not believing in the Lord Jesus who was humiliated and finally crucified on the cross at Golgotha for you and me.I want this case to go on so that the name of my Lord will ring bell in every heart and mind in Hague and all over the world..

  19. jesusb4paradise September 7, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    THE BEST THE LAWYER CAN DO FOR JESUS IS TO ACCEPT JESUS AS LORD AND SAVIOR, LIVE A HOLY LIFE AND PREACH REMISSION OF SINS AMONG ALL NATIONS IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

  21. Ezi September 7, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    This is a wild goose chase. Jesus’ death was a deliberate act to lure man out of the pit.
    He had the power to stop His death but for salvation sake He let them killed Him.
    This man should stop wasting his time and go for something that will bring salvation for him.
    Tomorrow may be too late.

  22. Owerri September 7, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    Oh, Mr Indidi of Kenya is totally bankrupt . Who knows the level of his alignment shoes that is begging for redemption. Charge and bail Lawyers. The Kenyan Internet scammer needs endowment fund to liberate himself .

  23. PATRICK AGBOBU September 7, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE VERY WRONG DIRECTION OR BEING A RELIGIOUS FANATIC. THE JEWS DID NOT KILL JESUS CHRIST, IT WAS THE ROMANS THAT KILLED JESUS CHRIST AND ORDERED THEIR SOLDIERS TO WATCH OVER HIS GRAVE. THE STORY CHANGED AFTER ABOUT 600 YEARS AFTER THE DEATH OF CHRIST AND THE ROMANS FOUNDED CHRISTAINITY, DURING THE REIGN OF CONSTANTINE AND DECIDED TO WRITE YOUR SO CALLED BIBLE. IN THE BIBLE THEY BLAMED THE JEWS FOR KILLING JESUS CHRIST, TO MAKE THEY TRHE ROMANS LOOK GOOD. JESUS CHRIST WAS NOT A CHRISTIAN AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SO CALLED ROMAN CHRISTIANITY. JESUS CHRIST WORSHIPED IN THE SYNAGOUGE.

    The attention seeking lawyer should apply his trade somewhere else not with our LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

  26. donik September 7, 2013 at 11:53 pm

    THIS GUY IS SERIOUS AND HAS A GOOD CASE. MAYBE HE WILL REPRESENT JESUS IN THE INTERNATIONAL COURT. I WANT TO SUGGEST THAT WE RAISE MONEY TO ASSIST HIM AND I VOLUNTEER TO BE THE TREASURER OF ALL THE DONATIONS FOR THIS CASE.
