Lebanon and Syria in the Funhouse Mirror of International Justice

Out of a series of terrorist attacks which took place January 16-17, the explosion in Kabul attracted the most attention. Information about the explosion in Lebanon was hardly noticed at all. But the explosion in the Lebanese city of Hermel on January 16, as a result of which five people were killed and dozens were injured, is of great significance in understanding what is happening in Lebanon and Syria. The time for the Hermel bombing was chosen deliberately. On January 16 the first trial of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) began…

A New Flare-Up of the War in Congo

The beginning of autumn was marked by a new flare-up of military operations in the central part of Africa. In early September troops from the rebel group M23 attacked the encampment of the UN mission to DR Congo in Kibati. The government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) sent a letter to the UN Security Council to request immediate intervention. The government of DR Congo demanded that the UN Security Council force Rwanda to finally withdraw its troops from the eastern part of the DRC and ask the International Criminal Court to declare the actions of M23 crimes against humanity... The war in the DRC has been raging for several decades, and the question arises: who is encouraging it?..

The ignominious anniversary of an illegal court. On 20 years since the creation of ICTY

Twenty years ago, on 25 May 1993, the UN Security Council created the so-called International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). The UN Charter does not give either the Security Council or any other UN body the right to create international law courts, which means that the creation of the tribunal was unlawful. Those who established the ICTY were fully aware that they were acting unlawfully, but went ahead nevertheless... From the outset of the ICTY, its activities were illegal...

Case of professor Šešelj: what must the Hague Tribunal do?

As it became known from the report by the doctors who visited professor Vojislav Šešelj on January 27-28, his state of health is critical. Staying in prison, without special medical aid he may die at any moment... Now when the medical conclusion has been announced, what must the Hague Tribunal do? First of all it must to release Šešelj immediately. The trial can continue but with the defendant being out of prison...

Caught in Turbulence

The views expressed by Sergey Lavrov at the January 18 media conference reflect Russia's evolution over the past years from a country which – at the cost of its great power status but to the liking of powerful external players and its domestic fifth column – used to be ready to steer a fully dependent course to that demonstrating newly found assertiveness in the international politics. US President Bill Clinton reportedly said in 1995 that the US would let Russia exist but not as a great power. The lesson to be learned from the past 15 years is that there are limits to the US control...

Seselj's Case Already Historical

In August, 2011, it was eight and a half years since Serbian Radical Party leader Vojislav Seselj had been, without a sentence, held in detention by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. The situation is unprecedented – among those to stand trial at the Tribunal, nobody else has seen the right to have his case heard within a reasonable period of time so openly neglected...

Ratko Mladic trial: a story of some legal and illegal aspects

The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) last Thursday (August 25 th ) held another court hearing on the case of Gen Ratko Mladic, following almost two months of lull since the last hearing in late June. But summer vacation is not the only thing to explain such a long pause. In fact, the events unfolded in quite an unpleasant way... The prosecution said that two separate trials were needed in view of the fact that Mladic has 'health problems'...

Political Manipulations with the Price of Oil

The drop in oil prices that began at the same time as Islamic State (IS) attacks in Iraq and Syria is impossible to explain with economic factors. The world has long been used to the fact that the market has reacted to every war in the Middle East, where 47 per cent of the world’s ‘black gold’ reserves are concentrated, with a sharp jump in oil prices. That is what happened during the two wars in the Persian Gulf, and that is also what happened when the Americans began their ‘mission to restore democracy’ in Afghanistan. And speculation about a possible military conflict between the US and Iran was accompanied by the expectation of a jump in oil prices of up to $200 a barrel and higher. At present, everything has turned upside down, but for how long?..
