A galaxy of Norwegian lawyers is expected to file a lawsuit on Wednesday with the Norwegian attorney general against Israeli leaders who committed war crimes during the last war on the Gaza Strip.

 

According to a press statement, the Norwegian lawyers will file the lawsuit after they obtained all needed evidence that proved the involvement of Israeli political and military leaders in deliberate killing of Palestinian civilians and destruction of private and public property with the aim of terrorizing innocent people and prompting them to overthrow the Hamas Movement.

 

The lawyers also accuse Israeli leaders of being involved in planned attacks on health centers, hospitals, ambulances, medical crews and public and private transport.

 

The lawsuit includes charges of practicing organized terrorism and using internationally banned weapons such as white phosphorus against Gaza people.

 

The complaint is submitted pursuant to articles 102 and 109 of the Norwegian penal code relevant to war crimes and gross violations of international humanitarian law.

 

The lawsuit demands the arrest and extradition of former Israeli premier Ehud Olmert as well as his foreign affairs minister Tzipi Livni, and war minister Ehud Barak in addition to other senior Israeli military officers.

 

In a related context, Dr. Zia Al-Madhoun, the head of "Documentation" committee assigned by the Palestinian government to document Israeli crimes, said that his committee completed the documentation of Israeli war crimes and now gets prepared to move internationally and file lawsuits against Israeli leaders with international courts.

 

During a meeting of the committee held Tuesday, Dr. Madhoun affirmed that his committee is in constant contact with international institutions, centers and international law experts in order to coordinate efforts in this regard, noting that the committee documented the profiles in a professional manner and in accordance with international standards.
