Nicaragua, South Africa Pressure Gov’ts Through International Courts

HeadlineFeb 06, 2024

Nicaragua could move to take Germany, Canada, the U.K. and the Netherlands to the International Court of Justice over their role in aiding Israel’s genocide in Gaza. Nicaragua called on the four nations to immediately stop providing arms, munitions and technology to the Israeli army.

Meanwhile, South Africa’s Minister of International Relations Naledi Pandor says she questioned why International Criminal Court chief prosecutor Karim Khan issued an arrest warrant against Russian President Vladimir Putin over his actions in Ukraine, but not for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Pandor visited the ICC offices while in The Hague for the ICJ ruling on South Africa’s genocide case against Israel. Prosecutor Khan was not able to answer the question.
