The Palestinian Information Centre – 26 March 2011
The Egyptian Foreign Minister, Nabil al-Arabi has discussed with JosĂ© Luis Moreno Ocampo, the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), the possibility that the ICC listens to Palestinian demands that the court investigates the crimes and violations committed by the occupation against the Palestinian people in the occupied territories.
Ambassador Menha Bakhoum, spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry said that âactivating the role of the court in ensuring no impunity for the perpetrators of those crimes,â was discussed during the meeting which took place on Thursday.
Observers believe that the Egyptian Foreign Minister wanted to put pressure on Israel in light of suspicions that the Israeli occupation is planning a new aggression against Gaza.
