PRESS RELEASE: Leave denied to judicially review British government's assistance with military shipments to Israel

IHRC is deeply disappointed with the High Court's decision to refuse leave to judicially review the British government's facilitation of military shipments to Israel.

IHRC Chair Massoud Shadjareh stated:

“It is disheartening that this avenue has been closed down. However this hearing also showed and made clear to the public and the authorities, the duty upon the Attorney General rather than individuals to act in such cases and bring relevant action over these issues.

“It is very sad for those British citizens who lost family in the bombing of Lebanon but also for society as whole. Surveys have shown that this was a very important issue that most of the public were deeply concerned about, there was obvious disquiet in the cabinet and even Jim Sheridan MP resigned from his post as parliamentary private secretary to the defence team.”
