ICC gives Israel one month to seek deferral of probe

The International Criminal Court (ICC) said on Thursday it has sent formal notices to Israel and the Palestinian Authority about its impending investigation into possible war crimes, giving them a month to seek deferral by proving they are carrying out their own investigations, The Associated Press reported.

The ICC prosecutor’s office confirmed in a written statement to AP that the letters were sent on March 9 to all of the court’s member states and those states that would normally exercise jurisdiction, including Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
