Justice and War Crimes traces the creation of the Office of the Prosecutor (OTP) in early 1994 prior to the arrival of the first Prosecutor, Richard Goldstone and his two successors, and details the Tribunal’s incredible journey towards its total success. Much of this story has never been told before.
It is a personal and unique look at the inner workings of the OTP (from 1994 to 2004), the first international criminal court since Nuremburg.
It describes how, faced with the prospects of a complete failure, the OTP brought about the apprehension of every living person indicted by the Tribunal and prevented the outbreak of war in North Macedonia.
It follows the murky path created by those who did not want to see NATO becoming involved in the apprehension of indicted war criminals. It outlines how the Kosovo conflict brought about the indictment and prosecution of Slobodan Milosevic, the first political leader of any country to be indicted for genocide.
Justice and War Crimes tells the untold story of a pivotal moment in the history of international justice and is a timely reminder of the difficulties and complexities involved in the prosecution of modern war crimes.
