ICC prosecutor dismisses court ruling to reopen 2010 Mavi Marmara case

Despite the order earlier this month by the International Criminal Court to reopen its case against Israel, prosecutor Fatou Bensouda rejected the call for a probe, noting the blockade was deemed legal by the UN, and the level of violence used against the Israelis.

Last year, Bensouda declined a request by the Union of the Comoros to launch a probe into the incident.

In her appeal, Bensouda reportedly wrote that the judges urging her to reconsider her decision did not appreciate the unique context of the violence aboard the Mavi Marmara.
