Prosecutor General forms committee to investigate complaints against Netanyahu

They demanded that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and senior leaders be tried for war crimes following the death of 9 activists who were on board.

The committee is head by Adel Al Said, Chief of the Technical Office in the Public Prosecution and will begin its activity next week listening to statements by Ambassador Ibrahim Yosry and Dr. Abdul Halim Qandil General Coordinator of the Kefaya movement.

State legal sources maintained that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak and the Israel Navy Commander in Chief could be added to the watch list of those banned from traveling overseas, in addition to being detained, prosecuted, or punished if they decide to enter Egyptian territory via land or sea.

They asserted that they violated the Egyptian law by committing crimes stipulated in Articles 2 / II / A, 77, 88.88, 85 / d, 40.41, 42, 43 of the Egyptian Penal Code.

Sources confirmed to Ikhwanweb that their crimes violated human rights as Israel opened fire before boarding the Gaza-bound ship, attacking unarmed civilians carrying relief supplies. They killed, injured and threatened unarmed peace activists, including Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood MPs Dr Mohamed Beltagui and Dr. Hazem Farouk and two other Egyptians activists.

The terrorist attack on the Gaza-bound Freedom Flotilla was documented on cameras and uploaded by activists to YouTube and Facebook.
