Borrell asks Israel not to "intimidate" ICC judges

European Union Foreign Minister Josep Borrell called on Israel not to "intimidate" or "threaten" the judges of the International Criminal Court, whose prosecutor requested the issuance of arrest warrants against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his army minister, Yoav Galant, on charges of committing war crimes.

Borrell said in an interview with Spanish public television TVE, "I ask everyone, starting with the government of Israel, but also some European governments, not to intimidate judges and not to threaten them," calling for "respect for the International Criminal Court."

On the 20th of this month, the Public Prosecutor of the Criminal Court, Karim Khan, said that he was seeking to issue arrest warrants against Netanyahu and Gallant, as they bear criminal responsibility for war crimes and crimes against humanity committed on the territory of the State of Palestine (in the Gaza Strip), as of October 8. /October 2023.
