According to the Jerusalem Post(March 29):
Palestinian group seeks Peres’ arrest in Switzerland
“A pro-Palestinian human rights group has petitioned Switzerland’s attorney-general to issue an arrest warrant for visiting President Shimon Peres.
The petition, alleging that Peres should be held responsible for allegations made in “the UN’s Goldstone report regarding the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip accuses Tel Aviv and its leaders of committing war crimes and humanitarian crimes.” -more
And this from the JTA (April 5):
U.N. Human Rights Council: Goldstone Report stands
JERUSALEM (JTA) — “The United Nations Human Rights Council said it will continue to use the Goldstone Report as written, despite its author’s retraction of a key finding.
Council spokesman Cedric Sapey told the Israeli daily Yediot Achronot on Monday that the Op-Ed written by Richard Goldstone appearing in The Washington Post of April 2 was his personal opinion and not that of the rest of the committee.”-more
And then there’s this Associated Press report (April 5):
Official: Goldstone invited to visit Israel
JERUSALEM — “Israel’s interior minister says jurist Richard Goldstone has accepted an invitation to visit Israel, a significant turn after Israel refused to cooperate with his U.N. team investigating Israeli conduct in the Gaza offensive two years ago.
The invitation follows Goldstone’s comments that he was reconsidering the conclusion of his U.N. report that said Israel deliberately targeted civilians during the three-week offensive against Gaza’s militant Palestinian Hamas group.” -more
