The Government of Reconciliation and National Unity in Nicaragua published a statement which informs the governments of the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, and Canada of “its decision to hold them responsible under international law” for violating the Genocide Convention and international humanitarian law. The letter cited the International Court of Justice’s decision which recognised the existence of a real and imminent risk of genocide in Gaza and called on the aforementioned governments to “immediately halt the supply of arms, ammunitions, technology, and/or components to Israel as it is plausible that they might have been used to facilitate or commit violations of the Genocide Convention“.
