World Court To Mull ‘Implications’ of U.N. Statehood

Prosecutors at the International Criminal Court said following the U.N. General Assembly vote to upgrade the Palestinians’ status that the court “will consider the legal implications of this resolution.”

Israel was concerned that the Palestinians with the upgraded observer state status they were granted last week would ask the court to prosecute Israeli military officials and political leaders for war crimes.

The court, based in The Hague, is an independent organization and not part of the United Nations system. Israel is not a member of the treaty-based court, which was formed 10 years ago.

ICC prosecutors in April decided not to investigate alleged war crimes during Israel’s monthlong Operation Cast Lead in Gaza that began in December 2008.
