Al Jazeera media network has assigned a legal team to refer the killing of its journalist Shireen Abu Akeh to the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
The network said in a statement on Thursday that it had formed an international coalition of its legal team and international experts and was preparing a dossier on Abu Akler’s murder for submission to the International Criminal Court Court Prosecutor.
In addition to the May 11 killing of Abu Akleh, who was shot by Israeli forces near the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank, the ICC filing will include the May 2021 Israeli bombing of Al Jazeera’s offices in Gaza.
“Al Jazeera Media Network condemns the killing of our colleague Shireen Abu Akleh, who worked for the network for 25 years as a professional journalist covering the ongoing conflict in the Occupied Palestinian Territory,” the network said in a statement.
“The network has vowed to do everything possible to bring justice to Shireen and to ensure that her killers are brought to justice and held accountable in all international judicial and legal platforms and courts.”
