ICC official: We deny making any statements regarding the Qatar crisis

Published: Updated:

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has denied any allegations made by Qatari media outlets attributing statements by ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda in which allegedly condemned the Gulf boycott on Qatar.

“The Public Prosecutor’s Office is concerned about the legal aspects of crimes related to the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court and makes no political statements,” an official at the International Criminal Court (ICC) told Al Arabiya News Channel’s correspondent in Brussels.

Qatari media outlets quoted Bensouda in recent days as saying that the ICC had condemned what they say as violations caused by Qatar’s boycott.
