MEDIA ALERT:

URGENT PRESS CONFERENCE

In an unprecedented move, South African based NGO’s will announce a groundbreaking application to the National Prosecuting Authority and Directorate for Priority Crimes Investigation for prosecution in South Africa of individuals responsible for War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity committed in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead.

Included in the 3500-page supporting evidence are complaints that the crimes have been committed within the wider context of Israel’s continuing policies of colonialism and apartheid. 

Due to legal sensitivities, an embargo that had been placed on details up to this point will be lifted at the conference.

Professor John Dugard SC and Professor Max du Plessis, two of South Africa’s leading international lawyers, are the lead counsel for the complainants.
