Foreign Minister of South Africa, Naledi Pandor, on Sunday said she expected the International Criminal Court (ICC) to issue an arrest warrant against the Israeli prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
We call on the prosecutor [of the ICC] to speed up the investigation and explore breaches of three of the four crimes under ICC jurisdiction: war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide, Pandor wrote in an opinion piece published in South Africas Sunday Times.
We expect that warrants of arrest should be executed for those most responsible as per the ICC principles of command and superior responsibility, she said, adding that these include Netanyahu and some of his cabinet members.
South Africa is among the countries strongly standing behind the Palestinians from the day one.
It is also one among as many as 12 countries that have recalled ambassadors and diplomats from Israel in condemnation of the occupational forces bombardment of Gaza.
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa also had addressed a mammoth rally in support of the Palestinians and their demand of Free Palestine on October 14, 2023.
All the members of the National Executive Committee who are standing here are pledging our solidarity with the people of Palestine. We stand here because we are deeply concerned about the atrocities that are unfolding in the Middle East, he said while holding the Palestinian flag and Palestinian kufiyya hanging on his shoulders.
In a related devlopment, Irish lawmakers have prepared a motion calling for the imposition of EU-wide economic sanctions on the Israeli occupation and refer it to the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate it for war crimes.
