Kucinich to United Nations and the International Criminal Court: All Sides Must be Held Accountable


NATO Given an Inch, Takes a Mile

Washington D.C. (May 7, 2011) – Congressman Dennis Kucinich, (D-OH), the leader of Congressional opposition to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) war in Libya, wrote to United Nations (UN) Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the International Criminal Court (ICC) Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo.

In the letter, Kucinich urges both the ICC and the UN to take “immediate action” to ensure that United Nations Member States and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which is acting to enforce UN Security Council Resolution 1973, are in compliance with UNSCR 1973 and relevant international law. Further, any actions taken outside compliance of UNSCR 1973 and relevant international law must be considered by the ICC.

Kucinich points to a April 30, 2011 attack on a compound in Tripoli that killed Saif al-Arab, the youngest son of President Gaddafi, and three of his grandchildren. Kucinich wrote, “A NATO strike on a compound that resulted in the death of family members of President Muammar Gaddafi clearly exceeds this [UN] mandate and must not be tolerated.”
