  • Motion reference: S6M-13303

That the Parliament notes what it sees as the significant development from International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor, Karim Khan KC, to apply for arrest warrants against leaders of the Israeli government and leaders of Hamas; recognises what it considers to be the seriousness of the reported alleged crimes, including murder, rape, starvation and torture; believes that the ICC must be allowed to carry out its work unimpeded and without intimidation or threat of sanction; further believes that there must be equal application of the law, and that no one is above the law, regardless of whether they are state or non-state actors; expresses its concern at the UK Government opposing the actions of the ICC; demands that arms sales to Israel are immediately halted by the UK Government, and continues to call for all hostages to be released, and for an immediate ceasefire to be agreed to.
