The International Criminal Court (ICC)'s Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said her office stood ready to investigate and prosecute participants in the conflict in Libya, during a UN Security Council meeting on Wednesday in New York.
«My office stands ready to investigate and, where appropriate, to prosecute any persons party to the ongoing armed conflict should they engage in conduct constituting... Еще a crime within the jurisdiction of the ICC,» she said.
«All parties to the armed conflict must take all necessary measures to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure, including schools, hospitals and detention centres,» she added.
The Libyan National Army (LNA), which controls eastern Libya, is aiming to take over territory from the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA), including the capital. The country has been split between the two rival sides since 2014. The five weeks of clashes in Tripoli's outskirts led to a stalemate on the ground, causing at least 432 dead and 55,000 displaced, according to the UN.
