The recent attacks on a humanitarian aid flotilla heading for Gaza have prompted NGOs at the Kamapal Review Conference ot issue a statement. The statement is still open for signature by NGOs, and I will post a full list once it is finalized.
Earlier today, on my blog 'PhD Studies in Human Rights' I posted a note on the possibility of the International Criminal Court exercising jurisdiction over the acts of Israeli forces.
The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights and the Fédération internationale des droits de l'homme are hosting an event at the Review Conference on Thursday from 12:00-13:00 in the Royal Palm room (opposite the main hall). The event will be a debate around Palestine’s declaration pursuant to article 12(3) of the Rome Statute, and may also include a screening of segments of ‘Gazastrophe’, a documentary on Operation Cast Lead.
Thanks to Darragh Murray.
