Press statement warrant of arrest for tzipi livni

  • by

Following the horrors inflicted upon Gaza by Israel during Operation Cast Lead (between December 2008 and January 2009), the Media Review Network (MRN) and the Palestine Solidarity Alliance (PSA) lodged a formal request to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) seeking arrest warrants and prosecution of those responsible for war crimes.

The material evidence submitted to the NPA in what has come to be known as the Gaza Docket is on the basis of South Africa’s obligation as a signatory of the Rome Statute to honour the provisions of International Laws and Conventions.

 The imminent arrival of one of the architects of the illegal war against Gaza’s besieged civilian population, Tzipi Livni, to South Africa, is viewed as a provocation and needs to be challenged. We have thus instructed our legal team to take all necessary steps to secure a warrant for her arrest and prosecution as a war criminal.

We are grateful for messages of support from many sectors of South African civil society, including trade unions and activists.
