Moroccan activists call for Shimon Peres' arrest

A group of rights lawyers have filed a legal complaint demanding the arrest of former Israeli President Shimon Peres – who will visit Morocco on 5 May – for war crimes.

"An urgent arrest warrant is required ahead of Peres's entry to Morocco on 5 May," four lawyers – Abdel-Rahman Bin Amr, Abdel-Rahim Al-Gamei, Abdel-Rahim Bin Baraka and Khaled Al-Sufiani – said in a complaint lodged with Morocco's prosecution authority yesterday.

"Shimon Peres has committed war crimes and crimes against humanity against [Palestinian] civilians," it added.

Despite having varying degrees of official relations with some Arab countries, Israel is still seen in a negative light by much of the Arab world.
