The Palestinian Fatah member Mohammed Dahlan has been investigated by the International Criminal Court for his involvement with Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, Abdullah Al-Sonoussi and other Libyan officials in crimes in the country, documents seen by the Middle East Eye had disclosed.

The ICC’s prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, wrote to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas seeking assistance from the Palestinian government as part of the court’s investigation into the Libyan civil war, the MEE added.

“My office seeks the assistance of the Government of Palestine in relation to the alleged involvement of two Palestinian nationals, Mohammed Dahlan and Mohamed Borhan Rashid,” the letter reads, “whose involvement with Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi, Abdullah Al Senussi, and other individuals potentially most responsible for the most serious crimes under the Rome Statute, is of concern to the Office, wrote the MEE.

Bensouda said that shed contacted the Palestinian government to help identify details of the two nationals’ relation to such crimes, including potentially aiding and abetting their commission.
