Hamas, EU Lawyers Cooperate to Prosecute Israeli War Criminals

The Hamas government has set up a committee to provide information to European lawyers investigating Israeli war crimes in the Gaza Strip.

"We provide documents, reports and evidence of crimes to all international bodies aiding the Palestinian people in bringing Israeli civilians and military leaders to trial and issuing warrants for their arrest," Diya al-Madhun, the judge who heads the committee told AFP on Sunday.

"We have provided a group of independent lawyers in Britain with documents, information and evidence concerning war crimes committed by Israeli political and military leaders, including (Tzipi) Livni," he added.

Al-Madhun noted that the foreign lawyers acted independently and were not hired by the Hamas government.

Livni, who served as foreign minister during the war, cancelled a trip to London last week after an arrest warrant was issued against her by a British court.

The Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip earlier this year killed over 1,400 Palestinians, including many children and women.
