The Palestinian Authority submitted an incomplete text of a speech by PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague leaving out a paragraph where Abbas admitted to crimes against humanity, according to a report by Palestinian Media Watch.

The speech in question was given by Abbas on May 19, 2020. In his remarks, Abbas stated that the PA was no longer bound by its obligations under the Oslo Accords due to the Israeli coalition agreement which allowed for the application of sovereignty in parts of Judea and Samaria beginning from July 1.

The version of the speech which was submitted to the ICC left out a section in which Abbas pledged to continue paying salaries to terrorists.

In the original speech, Abbas declared (which was not included in the version given to the ICC): “Currently, [the Israelis] have asked the banks not to pay the prisoners. We will pay the prisoners, and let [the Israelis] just try to stop us.”

However, this line was removed from the submitted text to the ICC.
