Madani welcomes Palestine’s accession to ICJ

(Jeddah) – The Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Iyad Ameen Madani, welcomed the decision of the official accession of the State of Palestine to the International Criminal Court (ICC) on 1 April 2015.
He stated that Palestine’s accession is its natural right and a reflection of the legal personality of the State of Palestine at the international level.
The Secretary General expressed his hope that this important step would be a legal prelude to the accountability of the Israeli occupation and Israeli officials for their crimes in the aggression on the Gaza Strip and the entire Palestinian territory, in particular the continuation of the settlement and occupation policy and the seizure of the Palestinian tax funds for punitive reasons and without any legal justification.
