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.

Tunisia’s declaration for direct access to the African Court is an important step for dual African Union and Arab League nations

Monday, June 5, 2017 - 09:04

Tunisia’s declaration marks an important step forward for a group of states which, although benefiting from membership of both the African Union and Arab League, have provided very limited access for individuals and NGOs to either the African human rights system or Arab human rights system. Even with their dual status as members of both the union and league, the benefits of membership of both human rights systems for Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Mauritania, Somalia, Sudan, Tunisia, the Union of the Comoros and Djibouti have been left largely unavailable and unrealised.

Why is Libya at the ICC?
Tuesday, March 15, 2016 - 10:07

it is making me mad that international justice is so slow. we always wait until all these horrible crimes are committed. i understand that this is how the justice system works, but acting now in the ISIS situation could be so essential in preventing more and more horrendous crimes. the ICC could be the solution to the problem and I think they should start the investigation now!

Very Nice article again, and very intresting because it is indeed a big question if Libia can do this properly. It is a big chaos now in that country so let us hope they can try him in an honest and independent way. Compliments to the writer of this article, hoping for more of this kind of articles in the future.

I like this cartoon and this very clear article. It is so obvious that Libya will not and will never allow the ICC to try the son of Qadafi
