Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir, the eldest daughter of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, has joined the thousands who have inked a petition urging the Pakatan Harapan government to ratify the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
The petition was initiated by students behind the leaked academic papers presented to the Conference of Rulers on April 2, which allegedly contributed to the government’s decision to renounce the statute.
The online petition on Change.org states that the Rome Statute would provide justice to the 298 people killed when Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down some 50km from the Ukraine-Russian border in July 2014.
More than 10,000 people had signed the petition as of 5.30pm.
Marina, along with a few other notable civil society figures, had promoted the petition on Twitter earlier.
