No one should be able to commit crimes against humanity without believing that they could be judged for them, he argued. “Thats why I find myself invoking the principle of universal jurisdiction in regard with these crimes” — Chilean congressman Hugo Gutierrez

On the 22nd August 2014, Chilean congressman Hugo Gutierrez filed a lawsuit against Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, for “crimes against humanity”. He was accompanied by the Palestinian Federation of Chile.

The congressman noted that various international organizations, such as the United Nations, have already described the Israeli attacks as “crimes against humanity”.

No one should be able to commit crimes against humanity without believing that they could be judged for them, he argued. “Thats why I find myself invoking the principle of universal jurisdiction in regard with these crimes,” he explained.

The principle of universal jurisdiction was used by Spain in the case of Augusto Pinochet, while the dictator was in London, and according to Gutierrez, by Israel for detaining and judging the Nazi Adolf Einschmann.

According to international humanitarian law, a military strike is illegal if it kills civilians, except if the death toll is judged proportionate to the concrete and direct military advantage the strike provided.

Yesterday, Venezuela’s president Nicolas Maduro also criticised Israel, calling the PM, Benjamin Netanyahu, a “Herod of today”, citing the number of children in Palestine who have been killed.

    Mrs Edweena: I too am an American of Native descent (Cree Nation) and it’s only natural that we stand up for the rights of those dispossessed of their land, slaughtered by colonials, and victimized by genocide, since our people are no strangers to the very same actions!
    Viva, viva Senor Gutierrez, y muchas gracias por su acciones!

    ITS ABOUT TIME! I am a native indian and many native Indians stand in solidarity with Palastine. Its been horrifying watch this and wonder what the world has come too. The israelies should be thanking palastinians for allowing them into the country when Israel was created under UN mandate in 1947 –instead the israelies have created heinous crimes with all of our tax money with no accountability! THANK YOU CHILE FOR RESTORING THE WORLDS HOPE IN HUMANITY AGAINST ISRAELIE BEASTS!!!

    p.s. HUH??? “According to international humanitarian law, a military strike is illegal if it kills civilians, except if the death toll is judged proportionate to the concrete and direct military advantage the strike provided.” So, what is being said is that “military advantage” overrides human lives, no doubt innocents who may also be caught up within the specific targeted area)??? what reptoid-archon does this rule come from??? murder is murder, whether it is within a targeted area or not!

    so hopeful that other government leaders are standing up to the archons in israel!!! and the former also should include all other government heads, etc.(nato, u.s. gov, etc.) who continue to be in bed with israel’s genocide of palestinians too! they are just as guilty.

      Yep! It’s only a matter of time. The gig is up! The U.S. veterans have been long hoodwinked by the Zionist propaganda machine and made to suffer and fight illegal wars for Israel. That needs to STOP. This is very much a U.S. Veterans issue. Listen up: If Americans Knew : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ly75-R5TN8

    Thanks to Mr. Hugo Gutierrez for standing up for Justice. We hope Netanyahu and other Israeli criminals will be punished for their crimes against the innocent people of Gaza.
