Erekat: We will raise all issues during ICC meeting next month

Ramallah (QNN)- Secretary-General of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)’s Executive Committee, Saeb Erekat, said on Sunday that the PLO will raise all of outstanding issues during the International Criminal Court general commission’s meeting next month, according to WAFA.

Erekat said the PLO will urge the ICC Judicial Council to open an investigation into the crimes of the Israeli occupation, and to publish a database of companies dealing with products manufactured in the illegal Israeli settlements.

“Whoever in charge of the institutions established to protect and defend human rights and combat war crimes shall not be subject to any political blackmail from a certain country,” Erekat told official Voice of Palestine radio.

Erekat added that in response to the recent announcement by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in which he recognized Israeli settlements as legal, the Palestinian leadership has sought action in the ICC, the International Court of Justice and the UN Security Council and the Arab Foreign Ministers meeting, so as to create a momentum that may influence the US resolution.
