Accountable For Gaza

Accountable For Gaza

by

 

In a case brought by a group of Palestinians, a London court today postponed a hearing over whether to issue an arrest
warrant for Israeli Defense
Minister Ehud Barak, visiting Britain, for war crimes during Israel's
offensive in Gaza. The 16 Palestinians, working with a Gaza-based human
rights group and two London law firms, have sought the arrest under the
terms of international law.

"There
are allegations of war crimes, there are families seeking
redress..." said UK-based attorney Michel Massih. "If the Israeli
courts were themselves to investigate, there would be no need to have
recourse to
international tribunals."
