Should citizens of the world help ICC find a prosecutor to be the successor of Luis Moreno-Ocampo?

ICC is a mockery of laws, jurisprudence and dignity.
Luis Moreno Ocampo term will expire in June, 2012 and the ICC is asking for people to candidate or nominate:
"Interested candidates or those wishing to recommend the names (of prosecutors) of qualified individuals are requested to contact the Search Committee through the Secretariat of the Assembly of States Parties:
Secretariat of the Assembly of States Parties
International Criminal Court
Maanweg 174
2516 AB The Hague
The Netherlands
Fax: +31 70 515 8376
Email: rene.holbach@icc-cpi.int"
With the legacy that Luis Moreno-Ocampo left and the work of the ICC that did nothing since 2002 when it was created no serious candidate will be willing to occupy this place.
But there are plenty of hypocrites to do this job.
If there was any decency left this court should end or at least explain why their budgets are so high for so little work.
David Morrison reported the hypocrisy of referring Libya to the ICC.
Joshua Rosenberg, in 2008, has demonstrated why he thinks Luis Moreno-Ocampo should resign.
Many citizens of the world are expressing in social networks of in comments in sites that ICC is another US weapon of character destruction.
Again: ICC does not have jurisdiction over Libya, still, ICC has indicted Seif al-Islam of crimes against humanity.
If this is a serious institution we are the world became a hospice and they forgot to send the memo to it's inhabitants.
A new prosecutor? To do what? Pretend they are working on African countries? To propagate that someone is morally condemned?
Who will be Ocampo's successor? Would you nominate anybody? If yes, don't forget to follow the ICC's rules.
ICC is a mockery of international laws and jurisprudence. It is a joke that will cost €117.73 million in 2012 as exposed here.
