Enough is Enough
CHRI was one of 95 CSOs that signed a joint public letter calling for independent investigations in the OPT. The letter urged States to support the creation and vote in favour of a resolution during the 28th Special Session on the Human Rights Situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory that would:
(i) Ensure legal accountability for perpetrators of violations of international human rights and humanitarian law, including for individual and command responsibility, and
(ii) Facilitate and expedite existing international investigations and examinations.
The Human Rights Council should also encourage the International Criminal Court to urgently open a full investigation into alleged international crimes committed by the occupying power.
