Libya's ambassador to the United Nations, Taher El Sonni, stressed the necessity of coordinating work between the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the Office of the Attorney General for the investigations pertaining to Libya.
El Sonni said during his meeting with the ICC Prosecutor, Karim Khan, that the ICC's role is to support the Attorney General's Office in investigations, not to act as a substitute for it.
El Sonni and Khan reviewed the work strategy of the ICC in order to complete the ongoing investigations in Libya as per the mandate granted to the ICC and its efforts to present the results as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, El Sonni stressed the need for the ICC to pursue those involved in the Israeli occupation's genocide crimes against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip as quickly as possible.
He also referred to coordination with Khan to hear his briefing later before the Arab Group at the United Nations regarding the situation in the occupied territories and the findings of his office’s investigations after several countries submitted reports to the ICC regarding the situation in Gaza.
