The International Commission to Support Palestinian Rights “ICSPR” has followed with great concern and interest the establishment of the Ministry of Interior in the Gaza Strip; This morning, Sunday, September 04, 2022, (05) death sentences were executed against those convicted of murder and communicating with the occupation.

According to the statement of the Ministry of the Interior; The executions were carried out at dawn today in the Ansar security complex; And that was by shooting the citizens “N, A”, (44 years old), on charges of collaborating with the Israeli occupation, and “C, Q”, (30 years old), on charges of premeditated murder. And hanging against each of: citizen “K, S”, (54 years), on charges of collaborating with the Israeli occupation, citizen “E., A”, (43 years), on charges of premeditated murder, and citizen “M, Z” (30 years), on charges of Premeditated murder and robbery.

The International Commission to Support Palestinian Rights “ICSPR”does not underestimate the gravity of the crimes attributed to the accused and the citizens against whom death sentences have been executed, and its emphasis on the right of society to approve and implement deterrent punishments for criminals, while the international body does not underestimate the (crowd) of the seriousness of the crimes attributed to the accused and citizens who have been executed, and its emphasis on the right of society to approve and implement deterrent punishments for criminals, and despite its opposition to the death penalty, it draws attention to the need to stop issuing and executing death sentences in light of the political and judicial division And the failure to renew the legitimacy of the institutions of the political system, except for the facts that prove that the issuance and execution of death sentences did not achieve the targeted deterrence.

The international body mobilizes as it condemns the execution of death sentences in the Gaza Strip; As it involves a violation of international agreements ratified by Palestine, especially the Second Protocol of 1989 annexed to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights regarding the abolition of the death penalty, in addition to the fact that the Basic Law and the Code of Criminal Procedures require the President’s approval of sentences before execution, and the Commission expresses its fear that the application of the The Revolutionary Penal Code of 1979, as it is not part of the legal and constitutional system of the Palestinian Authority, and if its position is repeated on the necessity of providing all fair trial guarantees and ensuring the right of the accused to benefit from all means of litigation, including the appeal in cassation, the petition for amnesty, and the non-submission of civilians to military justice, and expressing its fear That the execution of judgments was carried out under the influence of public opinion and not to achieve justice in the abstract sense, it stresses the need to work on the compatibility of Palestinian legislation, and in a manner that achieves the rule of law and justice.

The judicial and executive authorities in Gaza Strip to stop the issuance and implementation of death sentences, since the continued issuance and implementation of death penalty sentences in the Gaza Strip, includes violations of Palestinian laws, especially the Palestinian Basic Law and the Code of Criminal Procedure, and it also violates the obligations of the State of Palestine resulting from its accession to the second protocol annexed to the International Covenant on Rights civil and political abolition of the death penalty.

Calls upon the patriotic community to expedite the end of the state of division and the holding of comprehensive elections to ensure the rebuilding of all the institutions of the Palestinian political system on the basis of partnership, democracy, rule of law and independence of the judiciary in a manner that enhances the elements of resilience and provides a political, economic and social environment that combats all social diseases and crime and enables drawing inspiration from international experiences to combat The crime is in line with international human rights standards and the obligations of the State of Palestine under its ratification of international conventions, in a manner that guarantees restorative criminal justice and redress for victims of crime.
