Critical questions and concerns have emerged as the International Criminal Court at The Hague nears its final decision whether to launch a criminal investigation into Israel for alleged war crimes violations. Join Shurat HaDin
and a panel of legal experts this upcoming Sunday, October 18th, at 12 PM EDT for a fascinating webinar on the potential threat of an ICC war crimes investigation into Israel.
The court’s chief prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, has opened investigations targeting Israel and the United States, even though both countries are not ICC members and boast their own independent judicial systems.
Why is the ICC
so preoccupied with Israel?
Shurat HaDin’s live webinar will feature the following distinguished participants:
• Joseph Lieberman, former U.S. Senator from Connecticut
• Luis Moreno Ocampo, former Chief Prosecutor of the ICC
• Danny Danon, Israeli Ambassador to Australia and Former Israeli Permanent Representative to the UN
• Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, Attorney-at-law & President of Shurat HaDin
President of Shurat HaDin, Adv. Nitsana Darshan-Leitner said: “Almost as soon as the ICC opened its doors in 2003, the enemies of Israel and the United States used the court as a tool for political confrontation and settling disputes through prosecution while harassing political and military leaders. The court’s chief prosecutor has opened investigations aimed at Israel and the United States, although the two countries are not members of the ICC and boast their own independent and competent judicial systems. I invite you to participate in a fascinating discussion on an issue that will very soon be crucial for the State of Israel.”
