Accountable For Gaza

Accountable For Gaza

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.

A free and independent press is essential to the health of a functioning democracy

"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."
