Israeli State Prosecutor Official: We All Know Wall is Illegal
The International Court of justice ruled six months ago that the wall was illegal, should be dismantled, and Palestinians should be compensated for damages.
Kahan described the Israeli decision to boycott the Huge deliberations as wise, saying that Israeli presence would have provided more legitimacy to decisions made.
"When the wall runs inside a Palestinian village, separating kids from their school and people from their working places, we cant say things are all right" Kahan said.Â Â
Kahan also said that war crime charges, submitted to various courts in European countries against main Israeli political and security figures, created serious concerns within the Israeli legal system.
Kahan confirmed that based on those concerns, few Israeli figures were advised not to travel to certain European countries.
Kahan admitted that at one occasion, Israeli defense minister Shaul Mofaz was advised cut short his visit to Britain and run away over serious fears of being arrested.
