Former Dutch prime minister Dries van Agt has described Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a war criminal who should be tried in the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
His comments come ahead of Mr Netanyahu’s visit to The Netherlands this week.
Former Dutch prime minister and longtime pro-Palestinian activist Dries van Agt said Benjamin Netanyahu is a war criminal who should be prosecuted during his visit this week to the Netherlands.
Van Agt, who in 2012 said Jews should have had a state in Germany instead of the Land of Israel and who in 2008 spoke at rally in Rotterdam that featured a speech via satellite by Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh, spoke about Israel’s prime minister this Monday during an interview with the NPO 1 public television channel.
Nazi war criminal Erich Priebke will be buried in a secret location in Italy, his lawyer said, following a long legal dispute after the former SS officer’s death in Rome last week.
“We have an agreement with the authorities over the burial of Erich Priebke in a secret location,” Paolo Giachini said, after a funeral ceremony for Priebke earlier sparked street clashes near the Italian capital.
