Röling in Tokyo

Show Summary Details


This article discusses the dissenting opinion appended by the eminent Dutch judge to the Judgment of the Tokyo Tribunal. The author argues that the Opinion clearly shows one of the characteristics for which Röling was justly known, fairness. In spite of pressure from his own government during the trial, Röling steadfastly pursued his own vision. A similar sense of fair-mindedness characterized his views after the trial. Although he acknowledged its flaws, Röling remained a defender of the trial, and indeed was a consistent advocate of the principles it set out, and their application to all parties in conflict.
