Desmond Tutu nominates jailed Palestinian for Nobel Peace Prize 2017

Anti apartheid activist and Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town, Desmond Mpilo Tutu, has nominated Marwan Barghouthi, a Palestinian political activist for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The announcement was made through his official twitter handle where he wrote, ‘‘I have nominated imprisoned Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti for #NobelPeacePrize 2017. For peace and justice.’‘

However, the letter Tutu submitted in respect of his nominee to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, described the jailed Barghouthi as a symbol of the Palestinian people and their “struggle for freedom, [which] constitutes a clear signal of support for the realization of the Palestinian people’s inalienable rights, including to self-determination.”
