Prosecutor denies politicising court over Gaza

The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has rejected my accusation that he is politicising a judicial process by taking months to consider whether he can launch an investigation into Israel’s recent military operations in Gaza.

I accused him of jeopardising the impartiality of his court in this article. Mr Moreno-Ocampo seemed to be aware of it, referring to my “editorial position” when I and other reporters questioned him at the Qatar Law Forum last weekend.

He accepted that only states could accept the jurisdiction of the court. But he insisted that a decision that Palestine could accept the jurisdiction of the court would not amount to a finding that Palestine was a state.
