Minister Naledi Pandor’s security beefed up. See what happened

South Africa’s case against Israel at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) has seen International Relations Minister Naledi Pandor’s security being heightened due to threats against her and her family.

South Africa has approached the World Court seeking several orders, including the immediate suspension of Israel’s Gaza offensive, the cessation of forced displacement, the facilitation of humanitarian access to displaced Palestinians, and the preservation of evidence.

The ICJ has ruled that Israel must take all necessary measures to prevent acts of genocide in Gaza.

Minister Pandor believes that the threats she has received are related to the ongoing ICJ case, although she has not disclosed the source of the threats.

She confirmed that Police Minister Bheki Cele has bolstered her security detail.

Pandor expressed concern not only for her own safety but also for the well-being of her family.

Social media messages mentioning her children have further intensified her worries.

In light of these threats, she decided to approach Minister Cele to request additional security measures.

The situation highlights the contentious nature of the case between South Africa and Israel at the ICJ.

It also sheds light on the personal toll it can take on those involved.

It is crucial to ensure the safety and security of individuals who are engaged in such high-profile legal battles, as well as their families.

Threats and intimidation have no place in the pursuit of justice and should be condemned in the strongest terms.
