ICC submission calls for prosecution of EU over migrant deaths

Human Rights
Date: Wednesday, 10 July 2019 16:30 - 18:30

Venue: Université Libre de Bruxelles

The EU and member states should be prosecuted for the deaths of thousands of migrants who drowned in the Mediterranean fleeing Libya, according to a detailed legal submission to the international criminal court (ICC). The 245-page document calls for punitive action over the EU’s deterrence-based migration policy after 2014, which allegedly “intended to sacrifice the lives of migrants in distress at sea, with the sole objective of dissuading others in similar situation from seeking safe haven in Europe”.

On the 10th of July, the two main authors of the submission are Dr. Juan Branco, a lawyer who formerly worked at the ICC as well as at France’s foreign affairs ministry, and Omer Shatz, an Israeli lawyer who teaches at Sciences Po university in Paris, will discuss and present their submission to the ICC. Do not miss this great opportunity, and join us on the 10th of July to discuss this unprecedented submission!
