My bet would be “no”.

They cannot commit crimes at home in the USA either, by practice if not by statute. Even though some do not dare venture abroad for fear of ending up in the dock in The Hague for either war crimes or crimes against humanity.

His really heinous acts were all those lawsuits he filed against thoe poor OB-GYN doctors for birth defects that they did not cause, based on junk science that of course was later disprooved. I can’t imagine how he would ever repay those physicians for the anguish and financial losses he caused them and their families.
