Hungary: The request of the ICC to arrest Netanyahu is unacceptable

- Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán's chief of staff said that the International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor's request for an arrest warrant for the Israeli prime minister is "unacceptable" and cannot be implemented in Hungary.

At a press briefing, Al Jazeera reported, Gergely Guljas said that although Hungary, as a staunch ally of Israel, had ratified the Rome Statute of the ICC, it "never became part of Hungarian law", meaning that none of the measures of the court can be conducted in Hungary.

ICC prosecutor Karim Khan said Monday he had sought arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his defense chief and three Hamas leaders for alleged war crimes.

- This decision is not a legal, but a political decision, it is unacceptable and discredits the International Criminal Court, Guljas said.
