Hungary Rejects ICC Warrant Against Israel’s Netanyahu

Hungary’s Chief of Staff, Gergely Gulyas, denounced the International Criminal Court’s request for an arrest warrant against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, labeling it as “unacceptable.” Gulyas emphasized that Hungary, while a signatory to the Rome Statute of the ICC, has not incorporated it into national law, rendering any enforcement of ICC measures impossible within Hungary.

He criticized the ICC’s decision as politically motivated, asserting Israel’s right to self-defense amidst what he described as terrorist attacks from Hamas. This statement underscores Hungary’s alignment with Israel and highlights political divisions within the European Union regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
