Murder by numbers

Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - 13:13
By Stephanie van den Berg
 
The Srebrenica massacre always seems to boil down to numbers when it gets to court. I have sat through many hours of discussions about the actual number of victims, whether that number was large enough to constitute a genocide, the precise times to pinpoint who knew what and when at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and later in the genocide case before the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
 
Court cases are sometimes said to give victims a voice and I do believe they do in a...

Should the Islamic State's attacks on the Yezidis be referred to the ICC?

Has genocide really taken place during Islamic State's systematic attacks on Yazidis and other minorities in the Middle East?

Thank you for providing these important articles. This article which referred to the UN report has made it very clear about what is ISIS doing. Yes the ICC must get involved to stop those vicious killers from destroying our world and our humanity.

Thursday, February 5, 2015 - 11:15

This week's decision by the Hague-based International Court of Justice in the claims made by Croatia and Serbia on genocide during the 1990s has raised many questions. Justice Hub consulted expert Olivier Ribbelink, Senior Researcher at the TMC Asser Institute in The Hague, who has written on the ICJ's work and asked him to explain further what the decision meant.

Thank you Justice Hub and thank you Janet Anderson for this informative article. The questions are very important and has made it very clear that the crime of genocide has a very high threshold 'mens rea' element; this element must be met to substantiate the crime.

The ICJ in Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (Bosnia and Herzegovina v. Serbia and Montenegro) considered the standard of proof per the following:

"The Court has long recognized that claims against a State involving charges of exceptional gravity must be proved by evidence that is fully conclusive. It requires that it be fully convinced that allegations made in the proceedings, that the crime of genocide or the other acts enumerated in Article III have been committed, have been clearly established.

The same standard applies to the proof of attribution for such acts.In respect of the Applicant’s claim that the Respondent has breached its undertakings to prevent genocide and to punish and extradite persons charged with genocide, the Court requires proof at a high level of certainty appropriate to the seriousness of the allegation."

Once again, ICTY has proven its anti-serbian partiality. It is sad to see that this tribunal is like this. The judges and their legal officers were unfair in this judgement. We would have wished that the Muslims, Albanians and Croatians who killed the Serbians would have same sentences. ICTY had always double standards. It seems nothing has changed. ICTY is not a good example at all. A justice should never be selective and a fair trial should give the defense enough time and accept all the evidences submitted by the defense. Please don’t be betrayed by ITCY.
