Under the Sky, One should be equal as long as Human Being. Underprivileged social class, Before the birth, even after the death, this underprivileged group should follow the pre-framed given route. Upon realizing that crossing the given route is limited, its trial object would be named as ‘Betrayer’ or targeted as ‘Gov. Sanction’. Extending of this status, urged and resulted let David create hand written images between # 1 and # 58. Still, there, no one, no response, no way to get out, its condition is extended.

Challenges persist for multiple legal actions regarding MH17

Sunday, May 21, 2017 - 11:45

This week, focus has turned to an action lodged in the European Court of Human Rights by lawyer Jerry Skinner on behalf of 33 relatives of MH17 victims. Skinner claims that the application has reached the stage of “ready for judicial determination”. However, the case lodged by Skinner is not yet listed in the court’s database. It is unclear how far the application has progressed but it certainly faces a range of major obstacles.

On 27 January, the International Criminal Court opened an investigation into the crimes committed during the armed conflict between Russia and Georgia in the summer of 2008. Despite being criticised for exclusively targeting the African continent during its initial years, the Court has never ceased to conduct fair and transparent investigations in the interest of justice.

Who's afraid of the ICC in Georgia?

Courtside Justice with Mark Kersten
Thursday, October 22, 2015 - 10:11

The International Criminal Court (ICC) may have finally found its ‘road out of Africa’. Prosecutors at the ICC have asked the Court’s judges to grant them an official investigation into the allegations of war crimes committed during the war between Georgia and Russia over the territory of South Ossetia.

I think you are incorrect in respect of Russia's claims towards South Ossetia. Actually, it has never claimed South Ossetia to be its part. Moreover, Russia had recently opposed the idea of South Ossetia’s accession, though in a tacit manner. It was somehow missed by the western media, but it's still available e.g. here http://www.civil.ge/eng/article.php?id=28670

Hello Mark,

thanks for the analysis! After all, the Pre - Trial Chamber could still come to the conclusion that Georgian officials are able (and willing) to conduct investigations themselves, right? How certain are you, that the Court will indeed open an investigation?
