Nick Kaufman, a former ICC prosecutor, emphasized yesterday that it is impossible to offer a bribe to the new international court prosecutor Karim Khan, Israeli Army Radio said.
Kaufman reiterated that anyone who thinks that it is possible to bribe or bribe the new ICC prosecutor, Karim Khan, is mistaken. This comes as the ICC opens an investigation in Israeli crimes in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem.
Commenting on the lifting sanctions imposed on the outgoing ICC prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, Kaufman said: “This is a message that the solution is dialogue with the court, but [the Israeli] the government ignores this reality. “
He added: “I am not exaggerating if I said that it is necessary to postpone making a decisive decision on this issue until after the formation of a new [Israeli] government, since the issue is making a complex decision from a political and legal point of view.
Accessing Twitter yesterday, Kaufman said that “the Israel Cabinet meeting has been postponed * without * a decision on how to respond to the #deferral invitation letter from @IntlCrimCourt Prosecutor # Bensouda issued in accordance with Art.18 of the #RomeStatute. “
