FM urges ICC to start immediate investigation of Palestinian situation

May 16, 2019 10:43 A.M. (Updated: May 19, 2019 1:17 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki urged the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Fatou Bensouda, to begin immediate investigation into the situation of the Palestinians under Israeli occupation, on Wednesday.

During a meeting with Bensouda in The Hague, al-Malki said that the ICC should begin investigating Israeli measures in the occupied territories as soon as possible since the upcoming Israeli government intends to annex the West Bank and impose Israeli law on the illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied territories in an illegal way.

He mentioned how the Israeli courts dropped the murder charge from the perpetrators of the arson attack at the Dawabshe family in the Duma village that resulted in the burning to death of an 18-month-old toddler and his parents as well as the serious injury of his brother.

Al-Malki said the Israeli legal system is not a fair one and is actually part of the Israeli military occupation system, which requires the ICC to bring justice to the Palestinian victims of Israeli atrocities.

He also expressed Palestine’s support for the ICC in light of the US threats against it, urging it to continue to do its work as required from it.

Al-Malki presented an annual report on the Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people to Bensouda.

He also earlier submitted to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) an indictment list against the US for illegally moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
