Prosecutor: Palestine could join ICC

June 22, 2013 3:52 P.M. (Updated: June 23, 2013 12:19 P.M.)
TUNIS (Ma'an) -- The International Criminal Court head prosecutor believes Palestine qualifies to join the ICC after the UN General Assembly voted to admit the country as a non-member state in November.

Fatou Bensouda made the remarks Thursday at the Transitional Justice and International Justice in the Arab World conference in Tunisia, Palestinian officials who attended it said.

Palestinian justice minister Ali Muhanna attended the conference and handed Bensouda a letter on behalf of the Palestinian government.

The conference included expert opinions in matters of transitional justice and its processes in Arab countries, and the role of International Criminal Court in the region.
