Lessons from the former Yugoslavia, Libya…and NASA’s Voyager 1

Wednesday, June 7, 2017 - 23:01

As a former legal officer for the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), Grant Dawson knows better than most the consequences when war erupts on a barbarous scale: “I went to detention centres where people were raped and tortured and killed in ways that you could not possibly imagine. You couldn't imagine it.”

There is a saying in Nigeria that "prevention is better than cure". This saying recaptures my understanding of this speech.

There is another saying that "justice is for the living". What this means is that whatever we regard as justice must be capable of preserving, securing or safeguarding life. This ought to be the preoccupation of the world today. All the commissions of inquiries, investigations, trials and even convictions after the destruction of lives and properties benefits only people that are alive. This means that the dead are left to take care of themselves (if that is even possible).

To prevent crisis governments and international organizations at all levels must be on high alert. From practical experience, it is the improper or lack of resolving simple disputes and disagreements that leads to the greatest wars that usually claim the lives of innocent people who may not even know or understand the origin of the crisis.

Individuals must adjust themselves, and make it their duty to actively participate or timeously report to security agencies, anything that is capable of breaching the peace in order to protect human life and properties, and prevent violent crimes from happening. This is the surest guarantee to world peace.

What legacy for the ICTY in the Balkans?

Prlic et al at the ICTY
Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 12:43

Judges at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) have been hearing this week arguments about the convictions for war crimes in 2013 of six former high ranking Bosnian Croats. They received a total of 111 years in the original verdict for forcibly removing Bosniaks in an attempt to create a ‘Greater Croatia’ during the 1990’s. Their war crimes and crimes against humanity included murders, rapes, sexual assault and deportations.

Their appeal – and the strong support for it in Croatia - is one example of how the tribunal’s legacy is in dispute.
