So he came by night to The Hague, the city of Peace and Carnegie foundation of the Peace Palace and what it stands for.
Brutal war propaganda supported by opportunistic leader VVD party and Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
Today, Thursday May 4th is the Commemoration of heroes and war deaths, especially the citizens killed during the German occupation 1940-45 and the Jewish population arrested, transported through Westerbork to extermination camps of Hitler Nazi terror and genocide. Most camps were on Ukrainian territory, Poland and Eastern Germany. Soviet prisoners of war too were slaughtered as cattle.

This morning an impressive documentary on EuroNews about the yearly March of the Living at Auschwitz with interview of a lone survivor David Schecter who lost 105 family members.
Poland, Holocaust and History Revisionism | Apr 24th, 2023 |
In the night of 21 to 22 January 1943, the German occupiers evacuated the Apeldoornsche Bosch [Jewish mental health institute] That night, nearly 1300 people, patients and staff, were transported from Apeldoorn to Auschwitz. A transport for which there is no list of names.
It's not fitting for a partner in the Ukrainian War to show up today in The Netherlands. Awful and wrong symbolism of freedom.
His theme on Commemoration Day of Silence will be broken ... No Peace without Justice.
Unprecedented as an impartial investigation should take place, Zelensky as party to war in Ukraine, will visit the ICC courts. Will we get visits from George Bush, Dick Cheney, Netanyahu or one of his generals, Palestinian leader Abbas or Syrian president Bashar al-Assad??? Both America and Israel have threatened the ICC Court with military violence.
Having read volumes of articles and opinion pieces on the ICC’s much-touted document, we weren’t surprised by another one – editorial ‘Sacrificing South Africa to protect a war criminal’ published in @BDliveSA

While Frick is right to point out the legacy of the court and the need to defend it from “populists, nationalists and those who want to roll back the achievements of multilateralism”, she appears to dismiss its alleged Africa bias as insignificant and presents the ICC as the achievement of multilateralism.
In doing so, she repeats the rosy teleological narrative of the great uninterrupted and irreversible progress of a global system of justice told by the defenders of a “multilateral order” that is not multilateral at all.
Under the Trump and Biden presidency, multilateralism ended in brain failure …

In May 4... 1 day p/y that we remember OUR war victims. 1 day. THAT should be central on #4May! Not Zelensky. I think it is very misplaced that this visit has to be done NOW. Earlier this week, I informed the President of the Chamber that I will not be at the meeting with Zelensky
Courageous person, knows fitting response and setting priorities.

Situation in Ukraine ICC-01/22
Ukraine is not a State Party to the Rome Statute, but it has twice exercised its prerogatives to accept the Court's jurisdiction over alleged crimes under the Rome Statute occurring on its territory, pursuant to article 12(3) of the Statute. The first declaration lodged by the Government of Ukraine accepted ICC jurisdiction with respect to alleged crimes committed on Ukrainian territory from 21 November 2013 to 22 February 2014 [see end date … first procedure not the Maidan or Odessa massacre of civilians … Kyiv handled those two events??]. The second declaration extended this time period on an open-ended basis to encompass ongoing alleged crimes committed throughout the territory of Ukraine from 20 February 2014 onwards.
On 28 February 2022, the ICC Prosecutor announced he would seek authorisation to open an investigation into the Situation in Ukraine, on the basis of the Office's earlier conclusions arising from its preliminary examination, and encompassing any new alleged crimes falling within the jurisdiction of the Court.
On 1 March 2022, the Office received a State Party referral from the Republic of Lithuania. On 2 March 2022, the following coordinated group of States Parties submitted a joint referral: Republic of Albania …
How are the war crimes investigation and criminal proceeding of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict coming along? Palestine has no standing army, Navy or Air Force … one-sided slaughter and murder of civilians by Israel for 75 years. The American and AQ terror war crimes in Afghanistan over two decades … Iraq-Libya-Syria campaigns of Enduring Freedom … ??? ICC under UK head prosecutor Khan becoming a political tool … SHAME.
