PALESTINIANS TO ASK ICC TO PROBE PA FOR ALLEGEDLY TORTURING THEM
A group of over 50 Palestinians is expected to request that the International Criminal Court probe the Palestinian Authority for war crimes of torturing them.
Represented by Uri Morad, director of International Law at the Jerusalem Institute for Justice (JIJ), and lawyer Barak Kedem of the law firm Arbus, Kedem and Tzur, the group of Palestinians is trying to capitalize on legal judgments they have already won in Israeli civil courts on the issue.
The JIJ issued a statement on Sunday that they would file their complaint with the ICC in The Hague on Monday.
In November 2018, the Supreme Court effectively endorsed two judgments totaling close to NIS 14 million against the PA for falsely jailing 51 Palestinians, including charges of torture.
