Kenyan lawyer looks to sue Israel over Jesus' death

Former Kenyan Judiciary spokesman petitions ICJ, says 'selective and malicious prosecution violated Jesus' human rights through judicial misconduct, abuse of office, bias and prejudice'

A Kenyan attorney plans to sue Israel and Italy over the execution of Jesus Christ, Britain's Daily Mail reported on Monday.

Dola Indidis, a former spokesman of the Kenyan Judiciary, turned to the International Court of Justice after his attempt to file a similar suit at the High Court of Nairobi was thrown out in 2007, according to the report. 

Indidis has petitioned the International Court of Justice to overturn the trial and conviction of Jesus Christ and his subsequent death sentence.

"His selective and malicious prosecution violated his human rights through judicial misconduct, abuse of office, bias and prejudice," the lawyer told Kenyan paper The Nairobian.
'Some of those present spat in his face.' Indidis 

According to the New Testament, Jesus ran into trouble after performing miracles and claiming he was the son of God, prompting Jewish authorities to arrest him on charges of blasphemy.

They brought him to Pontius Pilate, then the Roman Governor of Judea, who told them he did not have jurisdiction to hear the case and sent him to King Herod, who sent him back to Pilate.
