Amal Alamuddin Turns Down Spot on UN Commission for Gaza

While it was previously reported that Amal Alamuddin was appointed a spot on the UN’s Commission of Inquiry for Gaza, she has turned down the position.

“There are various reports published today stating that I have been appointed as one of three members of the UN Commission of Inquiry for Gaza. I am horrified by the situation in the occupied Gaza Strip, particularly the civilian casualties that have been caused, and strongly believe that there should be an independent investigation and accountability for crimes that have been committed,” Amal said in a statement to

“I was contacted by the UN about this for the first time this morning,” Amal added. “I am honoured to have received the offer, but given existing commitments — including eight ongoing cases — unfortunately could not accept this role. I wish my colleagues who will serve on the commission courage and strength in their endeavours.”

In case you aren’t aware, Amal is engaged to actor George Clooney and they recently received their marriage license.
