Libya’s representative to the United Nations, Taher El-Sonni, stressed the necessity of coordination between the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the Office of the Public Prosecutor. Within the framework of the investigations conducted by the court.
El-Sonni stated during his meeting with the ICC prosecutor, Karim Khan, that their role is to support the Libyan Public Prosecutor’s Office in investigations and not to act as a substitute for it, according to the requirements specified by Libya.
The two sides reviewed the work strategy of the ICC to complete the ongoing investigations in Libya, according to its mandate, and its efforts to present the results as soon as possible.
Regionally, El-Sonni stressed the need for the ICC to pursue those involved in the Israeli occupation’s genocide crimes against the Palestinians in Gaza, as soon as possible.
