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 JustJared.com.

“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.

Amal Alamuddin Will Serve on the UN's Gaza Human Rights Commission

Amal Alamuddin has been appointed to serve on a new three-member commission for the United Nations to look into Israel’s possible violations of the rules of war in Gaza.

The London-based international law specialist is engaged to George Clooney and will serve alongside Senegal’s Doudou Diene and Canada’s William Schaba.

Navi Pillay
, the UN high commissioner for human rights, says that Israel’s airstikes could amount to war crimes in Gaza.

George recently voiced his opinion on the violence in Sudan.

“Sudan’s Air Force has acquired more accurate bomber planes and more destructive bombs to intensify its aerial assault against civilian targets in the war zones, in total defiance of feckless UN Security Council resolutions,” he shared on Vice News. “Our Satellite Sentinel Project captures frequent satellite imagery of communities leveled by bombing raids. So far, that evidence has been ignored.”

He added, “The situation may sound hopeless — but that is not the case. This is a crisis America can help resolve. On a number of past occasions, the US has used its influence to bring about positive outcomes in Sudan.”

FYI: Amal is wearing a Ted Baker London dress.
