Boris Johnson urged by CFI not to let the ICC's 'Israel war crimes' decision go unchallenged

Boris Johnson has been urged not to let the International Criminal Court’s controversial announcement of an investigation into alleged war crimes by Israel go unchallenged.

In a letter to Prime Minister, the Conservative Friends of Israel group also labelled this week’s confirmation of the ICC’s decision by the outgoing Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda a threat to UK interests.

CFI’s Parliamentary Chairmen, Rt. Hon. Stephen Crabb MP and Rt. Hon. The Lord Pickles and Honorary President Lord Polak wrote that the “dangerous precedent” raises the possibility that non-state actors will be able to “pursue vexatious claims against [the UK] and our brave armed forces”.

The letter emphasised that: “In our [the UK] own interests, we cannot afford to allow this to go unchallenged”.
