International Justice Day: one cause, multiple ways

 

Dear friends,

On 17 July 1998, the Rome Statute, the founding treaty of the International Criminal Court (ICC), was adopted. Since then, 17 July has become International Justice Day.

Although the date is linked to the history of the ICC, the fight against impunity goes well beyond this institution. Since 1998, many new ways to justice have opened up, and the ICC is only one path of many — albeit a very important one.

In this newsletter, we wish to highlight other aspects of international justice: universal jurisdiction, and the trend to prosecute international crimes under charges of terrorism; the duty of remembrance, as Bosnia and Herzegovina just commemorated the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre; or the exploration of new legal strategies to investigate past crimes committed in The Gambia. I also invite you to read our Activity Report 2019, which gives an overview of last year’s successes. They have only been made possible by your generosity, for which I warmly thank you!

Wishing you a pleasant read,

 

Daniel Bolomey,

President of TRIAL International
