Last week marked the 70th anniversary of the commencement of proceedings at the International Military Tribunal which was covened in Nuremberg to prosecute senior German leaders for international crimes committed during World War II. Visiting Professor Theodor Meron, who is a Judge of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (which was the first international criminal tribunal to be created after the immediate post war period) gave an interview to Euronews discussing the quest for international justice. In the interview, which can be viewed (and a transcript of which can be read) here, Judge Meron discusses the role of international criminal tribunals. Judge Meron is President of the United Nations Mechanisms for International Criminal Tribunals and, until last week, was also President of the International Criminal Tribunals for the Former Yugoslavia and Presiding Judge of the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. As Visiting Professor of Law at Oxford he teaches a course on International Criminal Law on the BCL/MJur.
