Jesus To Appear In Court?

I couldn't stop laughing when the headline caught my attention at the early hour of the day. 'Kenya Lawyer Sues Isreal for killing Jesus'. Isn't this interesting? 
The kenyan lawyer, Dola Indidis has filed a lawsuit against Israel over the death of jesus Christ in the International Criminal Court of Justice(ICJ), Dola claims the killing was 'unlawful'. Indidis, who has taken his case the ICJ in The Hague, is also suing Tiberius, the emperor of Rome in 42 BCE, “Pontius Pilate, a selection of Jewish elders, King Herod, the Republic of Italy, and the State of Israel,” according to the Post.
Indidis is using the Bible as his primary piece of evidence against Israel. 'Evidence today is on record in the Bible, and you cannot discredit the Bible', Indidis was quoted as saying by the Kenyan Citizen News.
Lawyer Dola further 'insists that the government for whom they acted can and should still be held responsible', Indidis, who reportedly is a former spokesman of the Kenyan Judiciary, insists that he has a 'duty to uphold the dignity of Jesus'. In 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". Indidis further maintains that Jesus was not given a proper say during his trial and that his resulting punishment was unfairly carried out. “I am suing as a friend [of Jesus],” he was quoted as saying. But in response to the case, an ICJ official is reported to have responded to the lawsuit by concluding 'It is not even theoretically possible for us to consider this case', according to the Post.
