This chapter presents Theodor Meron's opinion on Prosecutor v Stanislav Gali ć. He agrees with the reasoning of the Appeals Chamber with regard to Galić's Appeal. He writes separately for two reasons: first, to add a brief thought on why acts or threats of violence the primary purpose of which is to spread terror among the civilian population are criminal violations of customary international law; and second, to dissent from the decision to grant the Prosecution's Appeal as to the sentence.

Keywords: Appeals Chamber; Galić; violence; international law; dissenting opinion
