Hamas police: Abbas aides could be arrested if they enter Gaza

Oct. 6, 2009 2:33 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 6, 2009 7:14 P.M.)
Gaza – Ma’an – Hamas-backed police in the Gaza Strip threatened to arrest anyone involved in the deferral of international action on the United Nations report on war crimes in Gaza on Tuesday.

Police official Rafiq Abu Hani said during a Gaza news conference that if anyone linked to the decision to reverse the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) support for Judge Richard Goldstone’s report enters the Strip, they could be arrested. He said this could happen even if Hamas signs a unity deal with Fatah, which controls the PA in the West Bank.

“The police are legally considering the possibility of filing a lawsuit on behalf of the families of the police martyrs to sue Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas,” Abu Hani referring to the hundreds of police who were killed in Israel’s attack on Gaza last winter.

The withdrawal of a motion to refer the report from the UN Human Rights Council to the Security Council, the official said, showed “disregard for the blood of the martyrs.”

Abu Hani also urged human rights organizations to investigate the issue.
