Calls to adopt decision of EU court regarding Hamas

Politicians and lawyers have called for the adoption of a European Union court decision which removed Hamas from the terrorist black list.

In a meeting organised by the International Relation Council in Gaza, speakers called for the Palestinian Authority (PA) to adopt the decision, using it to support Palestinian interests.

The speakers also said that the three months left for the appeal against the decision should be used to double efforts across legal, political and public relations spheres in-order to make the courts withdrawal of the decision impossible.

French lawyer of Palestinian descent Khalid al-Sholi, who is following up the issue with Liliane Glock, the Palestinian Islamist group’s lawyer, stressed the importance of the dissemination of information in the Arab region in order to shed light on the significance of this decision.

Al-Sholi called on Hamas and other factions to review some of the political views voiced to mass media regarding Palestinian resistance.

The General Court of the European Union has ruled that Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas should be removed from the EU’s terrorist blacklist on technical grounds.

According to the Luxembourg-based court, the freeze of Hamas’ funds will remain in place for three months pending any appeal by the EU.
