Correction: Saleem al-Saqqa pledges to maintain Palestinian complaint to ICC

+

Palestinian Justice Minister Saleem al-Saqqa told the Palestinian newspaper Al-Resalah that he was strongly opposed to withdrawing the complaint filed by the Palestinian Authority before the International Criminal Court.

Pointing out that he is the only person authorized to withdraw the complaint, he made it clear that he had not taken such a step and insisted: "I will not withdraw."

Voltaire Network had reported that the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, had given orders for the complaint to be pulled back.

We thought, wrongly, that his order had gone through. [1]
