NGOs Call For Malta To Join South Africa’s ICJ Case Against Israel

Maltese NGOs have written an open letter to Foreign Affairs Minister Ian Borg calling on Malta to join the International Court of Justice case filed by South Africa accusing Israel’s genocide in Gaza.

Daphne Caruana Galizia Foundation, Moviment Graffitti and Aditus are among the 11 organisations who have signed the letter. 

“As concerned organisations, we believe Malta’s support in this matter would contribute significantly to promoting a more just and peaceful world,” the NGOs wrote. 

“The atrocities in Gaza demand our collective attention and action. The severe violations of international laws and customs, the loss of so many innocent lives, and the devastating impact on the mental health of children are deeply troubling,” the letter read.

“We understand that decisions at this level involve careful consideration, yet we believe Malta’s support for the ICJ case would send a powerful message about the importance of upholding international law and seeking justice for those affected by the attacks,” the NGOs emphasised.
