Show Summary Details


This book highlights the prosecution of Slobodan Milosevic, leader of the former Yugoslavia, and describes the development of the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and the evolving field of international humanitarian and criminal law. The middle-aged Geoffrey Nice has a scholarly appearance and speaks to the court with an accented British reserve that mixes contemplation with civility. Milosevic made continual use of state machinery, politicians, and military figures in a joint criminal enterprise as maintained by the prosecution. Dirk Ryneveld reminded the court of the thoughts of Justice Robert Jackson, who led the prosecution in the first Nuremberg trial. He also anticipated testimony about efforts to cover up war crimes in Kosovo by removing and reburying bodies, a tactic also used earlier in Srebrenica.
