The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court says her U.S. visa has been revoked, in the first evidence of a crackdown on the global tribunal by the Trump administration.

Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda’s office said in a written statement Friday that U.S authorities revoked her entry visa.

The statement added that the move shouldn’t have an impact on Bensouda’s travel to the U.S. for meetings, including regular briefings at the U.N. Security Council.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said last month that Washington would revoke or deny visas to ICC staff seeking to investigate alleged war crimes and abuses committed by U.S. forces in Afghanistan or elsewhere.
