PLO chief negotiator Saeb Erekat slammed the Trump administration's decision to close the offices; accusing the White House of protecting Israeli "war criminals" and "destroying the two-state solution".
Dr Mark Ellis, executive director of the International Bar Association, said Bolton's attack not only dismissed the principle of accountability for war crimes, but also "reinforces the Trump administration's repugnant policy of exceptionalism". Refusing to cooperate with the ICC because you think it sets a bad precedent for national sovereignty is one thing.
He said the US would take action against any countries or companies that cooperated with the ICC during the Afghanistan investigation.

"Israel supports the American actions that are meant to clarify to the Palestinians that their refusal to negotiate and attempts to attack Israel in global forums will not promote peace", he added. He said ICC judges and prosecutors would be banned from coming to the USA, their assets in US jurisdictions would be frozen and they would face prosecution.
Among the responses, Mr. Bolton says, the US would ban ICC judges and prosecutors from entering the country.
US officials had hoped that having the office would lead to a lasting peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "We will do the same for any company or state that assists in an I.C.C. investigation of Americans". Former President Bill Clinton signed the convention in 2000, but it was never presented to Congress for ratification and former President George W. Bush unsigned the statute in 2002.
PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi said the USA policy was unfair.
