The National Union of Lawyers Associations of Iran has voiced its support for the freedom-seeking lawyers of South Africa in their lawsuit against the Zionist regime’s genocide of the people of Gaza at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
In a statement on Saturday, the union announced the complete readiness of Iran’s humanitarian and human rights legal community to help their South African counterparts in the case brought against the occupying regime at the ICJ.
It also said that South African lawyers, who have experienced discrimination of apartheid with all their heart and soul, are determined to prove the Zionist regime’s widespread genocide and crime against humanity in the besieged Gaza Strip.
The union expressed hopes that the proceedings at the ICJ will be free from political pressures and will move toward realizing the rights of the oppressed.
South Africa filed a case against Israel at the ICJ in November, accusing the regime of committing crimes of genocide against Palestinians in Gaza as part of a relentless military campaign that has killed more than 23,000 people and caused widespread destruction in the besieged enclave since it started in early October.
Iran is among several countries that have supported South Africa’s lawsuit at the top UN court in The Hague.
