In letter to ICC chief prosecutor:

In a letter to the International Criminal Court (ICC), Iranian Foreign Minister called for the trial of the Israeli regime's officials.

Iran PressIran news: Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has called on the International Criminal Court (ICC) to set up a tribunal to prosecute Israeli authorities for war crimes in the Gaza Strip.

Amir-Abdollahian made the appeal in a letter to the ICC chief prosecutor on Tuesday, emphasizing the need for the trial of the Israeli officials.

The Iranian top diplomat went on to say that the barbaric bombing of Gaza and the ground invasion by the Israeli regime are examples of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide.

He further urged the ICC to adhere to its legal obligations and fulfill its duties over prosecuting the perpetrators of such crimes.

Amir-Abdollahian also noted that the support of some countries for “the Zionist usurping regime” is the cause of Tel Aviv’s continued brutality and violence. 

Iranian Foreign Minister also noted: “Now is the time for the ICC to decide whether it wants to resist the pressure of some powers, or allow the brutalities committed by the Israeli regime to remain unpunished, adding that this is a test of the Hague-based organization’s judicial independence and impartiality."

Iran's top diplomat in his letter also stated that it is expected that the ICC avoids double-standards and does not allow the perpetrators of such crimes to go unpunished.

Amir-Abdollahian added that Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs continues its diplomatic, international, and legal endeavors in support of the oppressed people of Palestine.  219
