Today at 19.00 pm "The request for arrest at the International Criminal Court for Netanyahu: causes and consequences"

24/05/24

The chief prosecutor of International Criminal Court (CPI), Karim Khan, requested the issuance of arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The decision is up to the Pre-Trial Chamber I, which will evaluate the validity of the accusations and the need to avoid further crimes or "compromise of the investigation".

What will happen if the measures are issued?

What does Israel's non-recognition of the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court actually mean?

The prosecutor also warned that in case of threats, pressure or intimidation he will resort to Article 70 of the ICC Statute. What does it mean?

We'll talk about it today at 19.00 pm with thelawyer Marco Valerio Verni, expert in international law and international humanitarian law.

See you there!
