Rape in war: the humanitarian response. (1/29)

Women and children are vulnerable to sexual violence in times of conflict, and the risk persists even after they have escaped the conflict area. The impact of rape goes far beyond the immediate effects of the physical attack and has long-lasting consequences. We describe the humanitarian community's response to sexual violence and rape in times of war and civil unrest by drawing on the experiences of Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders and other humanitarian agencies. Health care workers must have a keen awareness of the problem and be prepared to respond appropriately. This requires a comprehensive intervention protocol, including antibiotic prophylaxis, emergency contraception, referral for psychological support, and proper documentation and reporting procedures. Preventing widespread sexual violence requires increasing the security in refugee camps. It also requires speaking out and holding states accountable when violations of international law occur. The challenge is to remain alert to these often hidden, but extremely destructive, crimes in the midst of a chaotic emergency relief setting.  (+info)

Mass identification of persons missing from the break-up of the former Yugoslavia: structure, function, and role of the International Commission on Missing Persons. (2/29)

The staff of the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) is attempting to undertake the largest mass human identification effort in history. Through the generosity of numerous governmental and private corporations the ICMP has established or is currently establishing a strong network of political allies, family outreach centers, and DNA laboratories throughout the former Yugoslavia. Furthermore, the ICMP is currently working to streamline current technology as well as employ new technology in its efforts to assist in identifying missing individuals. ICMP will continue to act as a link between the family associations in the region and will synchronize the work of the DNA identification process in the countries affected by the war in the regions of the former Yugoslavia. In the longer term, ICMP seeks to contribute to the closure of the missing persons issue, to raise awareness of the human dimension of the missing persons tragedy, and to preserve a shared and common memory of the missing in the former Yugoslavia.  (+info)

Epidemiology of violent deaths in the world. (3/29)

OBJECTIVE: This study describes epidemiologic patterns of mortality due to suicide, homicide, and war for the world in order to serve as a benchmark against which to measure future progress and to raise awareness about violence as a global public health problem. SETTING: The world and its eight major regions. METHOD: Data were derived from The Global Burden of Disease series and the US National Center for Health Statistics to estimate crude rates, age adjusted rates, sex rate ratios, and the health burden for suicide, homicide, and war related deaths for the world and its eight major regions in 1990. RESULTS: In 1990, an estimated 1,851,000 people died from violence (35.3 per 100,000) in the world. There were an estimated 786,000 suicides. Overall suicide rates ranged from 3.4 per 100,000 in Sub-Saharan Africa to 30.4 per 100,000 in China. There were an estimated 563,000 homicides. Overall homicide rates ranged from 1.0 per 100,000 in established market economies to 44.8 per 100,000 in Sub-Saharan Africa with peaks among males aged 15-24 years old, and among females aged 0-4 years old. There were an estimated 502,000 war related deaths with peaks in rates for both sexes among people aged 0-4, 15-29, and 60-69 years old. CONCLUSION: The number of violence related deaths in the world is unacceptably high. Coordinated prevention and control efforts are urgently needed.  (+info)

A population-based assessment of human rights abuses committed against ethnic Albanian refugees from Kosovo. (4/29)

OBJECTIVES: This study assessed patterns of displacement and human rights abuses among Kosovar refugees in Macedonia and Albania. METHODS: Between April 19 and May 3, 1999, 1180 ethnic Albanian refugees living in 31 refugee camps and collective centers in Macedonia and Albania were interviewed. RESULTS: The majority (68%) of participants reported that their families were directly expelled from their homes by Serb forces. Overall, 50% of participants saw Serb police or soldiers burning the houses of others, 16% saw Serb police or soldiers burn their own home, and 14% witnessed Serb police or soldiers killing someone. Large percentages of participants saw destroyed mosques, schools, or medical facilities. Thirty-one percent of respondents reported human rights abuses committed against their household members, including beatings, killings, torture, forced separation and disappearances, gunshot wounds, and sexual assault. CONCLUSIONS: The present findings confirm that Serb forces engaged in a systematic and brutal campaign to forcibly expel the ethnic Albanian population of Kosovo. In the course of these mass deportations, Serb forces committed widespread abuses of human rights against ethnic Albanians.  (+info)

From dust to dust: ethical and practical issues involved in the location, exhumation, and identification of bodies from mass graves. (5/29)

There are many potential purposes served by the investigation of human remains: criminal fact-finding, archaeological exploration, forensic research, and others. This paper focuses on the identification of remains from mass graves to find missing persons. The primary goal of such efforts is to honor the memory of the dead by bringing closure to living family members, thus supporting the human rights of both the living and the deceased. Cultures, customs, political, and interpersonal specifics will vary, but that singular goal should remain the central guiding principle. This article presents ethical and practical issues resulting from efforts to locate, exhume, and identify the remains of mass fatalities.  (+info)

Identification of human remains by immobilized sequence-specific oligonucleotide probe analysis of mtDNA hypervariable regions I and II. (6/29)

AIM: A rapid analysis of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences with an array of immobilized sequence-specific oligonucleotide (SSO) probes was tested on 18 skeletal elements recovered from mass graves in Croatia, which could not be genotyped with common forensic nuclear DNA systems (PM+DQA1 and short tandem repeat analysis). METHODS: We used duplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of the mtDNA hypervariable regions I and II (HVI and HVII) (444 bp and 415 bp amplicons, respectively) and subsequent linear array typing, which targets six polymorphic regions and two additional sites within the human mtDNA HVI and HVII. The remaining amplified products were subjected to direct sequence analysis to obtain complete sequence information for the targeted HV regions. RESULT: Duplex PCR amplification of the mtDNA HVI and HVII was successful in providing sufficient product for typing with the array of SSO probes in 14 out of the 18 sample extracts. We report here the sequence match of one set of remains with a panel of immobilized SSO probes, followed by direct sequence analysis. The corresponding mtDNA haplotype obtained for the bone sample and the putative maternal reference was unique in a database of 105 randomly selected Croatian individuals. CONCLUSION: Mitochondrial DNA typing with an array of immobilized SSO probes can be a benefit to forensic DNA analysis of mass disaster remains and identity testing of single and mass graves.  (+info)

How high should paternity index be for reliable identification of war victims by DNA typing? (7/29)

AIM: To analyze statistically and logically the significance of genetic matches between skeletal remains and relatives of missing persons in the process of identification of war victims by DNA typing. METHODS: DNA was isolated from bone and blood samples and short tandem repeat (STR) loci were typed by using AmpFLSTR Profiler, Profiler Plus, and Identifiler kits. Novel mini-haplotype analysis that compares matches in all three-locus combinations of alleles was developed and used in the analysis of inbreeding in the group of 295 unrelated individuals. RESULTS: While comparing 98 skeletal remains exhumed in the process of identification of war victims in Croatia with over 3,000 genotypes of relatives of missing persons, we revealed 20 cases of 14-locus matches and 4 cases of 15-locus matches between unrelated people. We hypothesized that this unexpectedly high number of false matches might be a consequence of local inbreeding and supported this hypothesis with very low correlation between the probability of a genotype and the number of matching genotypes in the database (R(2) = 0.36). Further support for the hypothesis was obtained by the analysis of mini-haplotypes, which revealed up to 90% overrepresentation of some mini-haplotypes. CONCLUSIONS: STR DNA typing is the "golden standard" of human identification, but evidential value of a genetic match can be easily misinterpreted. Therefore, careful use of statistical methods is essential for the proper evaluation of laboratory results. Whenever possible, multiple relatives should be analyzed and other evidence based on the information about time, place, and other conditions of disappearance, as well as anthropological and other "classical" forensic data should always be put together and compared before any final decision about the identity is made.  (+info)


Emotional involvement of the examiner, hostility and mistrust on the part of the examinees and the long interval since the original events comprise some of the problems facing medical assessors of survivors of National Socialist persecution. Experience with over 100 such persons confirmed the high incidence of irreversible and usually disabling disorders, mainly functional and psychiatric-"late damage" as it has been designated in recent reports on this subject. The most common disorders encountered in the assessments of 70 survivors are reviewed. A number of organic diseases such as organic brain damage, active tuberculosis and fractures were revealed only after careful search. Recent findings by psychiatric assessors are reviewed; their plea for greater familiarity with late effects in survivors of National Socialist persecution is echoed, and the need for medical, psychiatric and social support of these unfortunate individuals is emphasized.  (+info)

War crimes also included deliberate attacks on citizens and property of neutral states, as at the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As the attack on Pearl Harbor happened while the U.S. and Japan were at peace and without a just cause for self-defense, the attack was declared by the Tokyo Trials to go beyond justification of military necessity and therefore constituted a war crime.[29][30][31] War crimes are significant in international humanitarian law[32] because it is an area where international tribunals such as the Nuremberg Trials and Tokyo Trials have been convened. Recent examples are the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, which were established by the UN Security Council acting under Chapter VIII of the UN Charter. Under the Nuremberg Principles, war crimes are different from crimes against peace which is planning, preparing, initiating, or waging a war of aggression, or a war in violation of international ...

To prosecute perpetrators of war crimes the International Criminal Court (ICC) must connect the physical actions of the offence and most responsible offenders charged with planning, instigating and intent on carrying out crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and crimes of aggression. To date there has been no empirical study of the types of physical actions that make up this offence. There is no baseline knowledge to contextualize the offence and enable the ICC to make links between the actions on the ground and a perpetrators culpability.. The purpose of this study was to produce the first multivariate model of war crime ground action using cases of war crime offences in Cambodia and Rwanda. The aim was to first identify a representative range offence behaviours, and secondly determine if ground actions could be differentiated into distinct forms of offending that indicate culpability, that is, knowledge and intent in carrying out the crime. Lastly, offence behaviours ...
The history of the Manifesto reflects to a great extent the Resistance Army Essay history of the modern working class movement; at present it is undoubtedly the most widespread, the most international production of all socialist literature, the Courtroom 302 by Steve Bogira common platform acknowledged by millions of workingmen from Siberia to California. The Lords Essay! 1 So wrote Frederick Engels towards the end of his life of the impact of The Communist Manifesto. The statement remains as true today, 150 years later. The impact of The Communist Manifesto has been remarkable. This small book has been translated into all the major languages and jackson has remained an inspiration for Resistance Army generations of george, socialists. It has entered into working class consciousness in a way that few other political works have been able to do. It is often the first and perhaps even the only piece of writing by Marx and The Lords Resistance Essay Engels that many workers read. It also has a ...

Abstract In December 2003, President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda referred the situation of northern Uganda in respect to the Lords Resistance Army (LRA) to the International Criminal Court (ICC). The LRA had been wreaking havoc on the civilian population since the beginning of 1987. The LRA actions included abductions, forced conscription of child soldiers, sex slavery, rape, mutilation, torture, looting and destruction of property, among other crimes. These actions fell within the ambit of war crimes and crimes against humanity punishable under international law. In response to the referral, the ICC Chief Prosecutor, Luis Moreno-Ocampo intervened to bring the LRA top leadership to justice. The referral was an opportunity to punish the LRA for their atrocities and to bring an end to the protracted conflict which had caused so much suffering to the people living in northern Uganda. The referral was also an opportunity for the ICC to put its capacity to the test as the referral was the first for ...
Asked if there was any indication that the completion strategy requirement that first instance trials to be completed by the end of 2008 would be extended by a few months, Hodžić said that there were no new Security Council resolutions with any new timeline. In his last address before the Security Council, President Pocar had indicated that the trials could run into 2009 and that the appeals would take two years from the completion of first instance trials. Hodžić said that the Tribunal was committed to meeting these deadlines while securing the rights of the accused to a fair and expeditious trial. Further, he stated he could not imagine a scenario where the international community, with the Security Council as its highest body, would jeopardize the investment in the international justice that was Tribunals by bringing into question the trials to be held.. ...

The documentary film has long served as an effective and influential communications tool for speaking truth to power. Activists have used this medium of storytelling for years to mobilize audiences of the general public to take action and demand progressive social change. While this process has been in wide use for quite some time, evidence of its effectiveness is rare. In those few cases where a documentary film is credited with directly influencing change, it is usually when the audience of the film is not the general public, but those with the power to enact the change.. This paper will explore two new approaches to documentary film engagement designed to facilitate and accelerate the activist intentions of the social change documentarian. The first examines a new process of collaboration that involves the changemaker prior to and during production, not only after as is currently the common practice. The second is a form and structure of the documentary film designed with community ...

Delivering her annual report to members of the ICC in The Hague on Monday, chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said she would decide imminently whether to ask judges for permission to launch a full-blown investigation as to whether US military forces and CIA operatives may have committed war crimes in Afghanistan through the cruel or violent interrogation of detainees.. Bensouda said the Taliban, Afghan government forces and U.S. troops as well as the CIA all appeared to have carried out war crimes. At least 61 detainees were subjected to torture (and) cruel treatment by US armed forces in Afghanistan between May 1, 2003, and December 31, 2014, according to ICC initial findings..

New York) - Human Rights Watch today hailed the 60th ratification of the International Criminal Court (ICC) treaty. At United Nations headquarters in New York, governments supporting the rule of law welcomed the establishment of the first permanent international tribunal to try those accused of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. The ICC was created because national court systems -- from Guatemala to Sierra Leone to Iraq -- have failed to provide justice to the victims of egregious crimes. The Court will take cases only when the national systems do not work.. The International Criminal Court is potentially the most important human rights institution created in 50 years. It will be the court where the Saddams, Pol Pots and Pinochets of the future are held to account, said Richard Dicker, Director of the International Justice Program at Human Rights Watch.. The Court will have authority to prosecute the most serious international crimes that are committed after July 1, 2002. The ...

JURIST] Tens of thousands of Sudanese demonstrators Tuesday gathered at UN headquarters and US and UK embassies in Khartoum to protest the recently approved UN resolution [JURIST report] turning Sudanese war crimes trials over to the International Criminal Court. The protesters denounced UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan as a coward and agent of the US. The demonstrations were promoted by the state-run mobile phone service that sent messages to phone users. Protesters called the UN action foreign intervention aimed at exerting control over the country. The UN Security Council approved the resolution last week to refer suspects linked to war crimes in the Darfur region, where millions have been left homeless and tens of thousands killed in fighting between rebel forces and Arab militias. Sudan [government website; JURIST news archive] has vigorously rejected the resolution [text], arguing the war crimes trials can be held in the country. The Sudan Tribune has local coverage.

JURIST] Former Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladic [BBC profile; JURIST news archive] began his defense case before the UN International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) [official website] on Monday with testimony of Mile Sladoje, a former Serb army officer who claimed that he was never ordered to shoot civilians during the the 1995 Srebrenica massacre [BBC backgrounder]. Mladic faces an 11-count indictment, alleging that he was responsible for the massacre as well as a Serb sniping and mortar campaign. The former general, however, denies these charges, insisting instead that his troops were acting in defense of the Serbs. To support this assertion, Sladojes testified that he never received nor issued any orders to open fire on civilians during the time of the conflict. If convicted, Mladic faces a maximum life sentence.. Mladic has been engaged in a tumultuous relationship with the ICTY, both in regards to his own case and to those of his former compatriots accused of similar ...

Policy Connect convened an in conversation with former Lords Speaker the Rt. Hon the Baroness DSouza and the Rt. Hon the Lord Norton to discuss what role the House of Lords holds now that we have a hung Parliament, and whether the Lords will have more sway of Parliamentary proceedings as a result.. Baroness DSouza and Lord Norton began proceedings by discussing the way that the House of Lords works with the House of Commons, particularly in light of the hung Parliament result and balance of power between the Commons parties.. Lord Norton commented that the Lords held a complementary role to the Commons. The role of MPs has grown significantly - larger constituencies, with fundamentally different relationship with the media and their constituents. MPs simply dont have the time required for the scrutinising functions, and thus the Peers have taken on the role of scrutiny. They have the time and expertise to dedicate towards inspecting legislation.. The Chamber has reinvented itself since the ...
21. George W. Bush, former President of the United States (January 1, 2001, to December 31, 2008), the Government of the United States of America (August 2, 1990, to the present), Anthony Charles Lynton Blair, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (May, 2, 1997 to June 27, 2007), and the Government of the United Kingdom committed war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide in Iraq because the regional rainout and dispersion of depleted uranium particulates across the Middle East, India and the Himalayas, Central Asia, China, and Japan caused large increases in diabetes across that vast region and beyond. Globally diabetes rates have climbed from 30 million in 1986, the year the Chernobyl disaster occurred, to 230 million by 2006, a 767% increase in 20 years primarily due to the use of depleted uranium weapons in Iraq and Afghanistan since August 2, 1990. According to the United Nations, the number of diabetics is expected to reach 350 million by 2025. China and India now have the ...

Violations of international human rights and humanitarian law in Somalia may amount to war crimes, the United Nations human rights agency said.Members of the Islamist al-Shabaab movement in the country have carried out extrajudicial executions, planted mines and other explosive devices in civilian areas, and used civilians as human shields, said Navi Pillay, the UN…
In December 2008 this Israeli Terrorist Forces added another war crime to its long list of war crimes against the Palestinians since 1948. One more time the international political community had become an accomplice to one more Israeli war crime either by being a passive silent witness or by becoming an active participant and protector of Israeli war criminals. One more international war crime had been perpetrated against the Palestinians. It is an international crime since multi political regimes; Israeli, American, European and even Arab governments, had joined in this crime that is STILL GOING ON up to this very minute.. For almost the last three years Israel had subjected Gaza to an illegal economic siege, which in itself constitutes a crime against humanity. Israel had, and still is, preventing the entry into Gaza of vital life sustaining products such as food stuff, fuel, medicine and needed medical equipment, water purification equipment and many building materials. This is a genocidal ...
This chapter analyzes the consequences of the same body of law being utilized by different entities for different purposes. It specifically compares the use of international criminal law by international criminal courts and by human rights commissions of inquiry. The chapter first situates modern human rights commissions of inquiry within the broader institutional fact-finding framework of the UN and examines how these make use of international criminal law. The approaches of various commissions are then compared and contrasted with judicial approaches, especially in terms of their interpretation and application of international criminal law. The slightly divergent approaches of commissions of inquiry are justified through the idea of

A particularly effective strategy for demonizing Germans was the use of atrocity stories. A handy rule for arousing hate, said Lasswell is, if at first they do not enrage, use an atrocity. It has been employed with unvarying success in every conflict known to man. Unlike the pacifist, who argues that all wars are brutal, the atrocity story implies that war is only brutal when practiced by the enemy. Certain members of the CPI were relatively cautious about repeating unsubstantiated allegations, but the committees publications often relied on dubious material. After the war, Edward Bernays, who directed CPI propaganda efforts in Latin America, openly admitted that his colleagues used alleged atrocities to provoke a public outcry against Germany. Some of the atrocity stories which were circulated during the war, such as the one about a tub full of eyeballs or the story of the seven-year old boy who confronted German soldiers with a wooden gun, were actually recycled from previous conflicts. ...

The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavias Karadžić verdict, eagerly awaited, was unsurprising. He was found guilty of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. One part of the judgment was concerned with the Srebrenica events in which much forensic evidence from mass graves featured. Whilst this was to be expected, forensic evidence from the horrific crime scenes continues to be important in determining aspects of the crime base. This paper discusses the evidence and examines how the Chamber came to the conclusion that systematic killing of thousands of Bosnian Muslim men occurred and attempts had been made to conceal the crimes and human remains in secondary graves thus confirming the actus reus of genocide ...
The organisation is concerned at the lack of co-operation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (the Tribunal) in the Hague, as well as the rarity of domestic war crimes prosecutions. Amnesty International believes that, in order to create the conditions for the respect and protection of human rights in the FRY, it is imperative that those responsible for these crimes be brought to justice in the course of proceedings which meet international standards of fair trials, and that all victims of these crimes receive adequate reparation. In particular, there is an overwhelming need to resolve the hundreds of cases of enforced disappearances and abductions (2), most of which constitute crimes against humanity. Amnesty International considers that the suffering of relatives of the disappeared, in their attempts to establish what happened to their family members, amounts to a violation of their right to freedom from torture and inhuman or degrading treatment, and urges ...

Nyala, Sudan , AFP , Sudanese civilians displaced during the devastating conflict in Darfur have welcomed news that a top militia leader accused of atrocities there has surrendered himself to the International Criminal Court.. Ali Kushayb, also known as Ali Muhammad Abdelrahman, was wanted on more than 50 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity in the western region.. He turned himself in earlier this week in the Central African Republic, ending 13 years on the run.. I couldnt believe it at first, said Badria Saleh, who lives in a refugee camp of mud houses with grass and plastic roofs in the South Darfur region.. Kushayb killed my husband and my brother as they were burying a relative in 2013, she told AFP.. We fled our village, she added, bursting into tears.. The Darfur conflict broke out in 2003 when ethnic African rebels, complaining of systematic discrimination, took up arms against the government of longtime dictator Omar al-Bashir.. The state hit back with violence by the ...
Investigating missing persons cases is a complex field. There is no single service responsible for the investigation or the provision of support to those who are found, or to the family and friends of missing persons. Police services across Australia play a crucial role in responding to reports of missing people, complemented by non-government search agencies such as The Salvation Army and the Australian Red Cross. Since national research on missing persons was conducted ten years ago, there have been a range of initiatives to improve the response to reports of missing people, particularly in the promotion of a national approach. However, police data suggest there may be more people going missing than ever before, but until there are better data this cannot be clarified with any confidence. Similarly, risk factors amongst different groups of missing persons cannot be properly identified. The potential role of the non-government sector to assist searches and prevent people from going missing seems
The recent high profile visit of British Foreign Secretary William Hague and actress Angelina Jolie to Gisozi genocide memorial briefly drew the attention of the international media back to Rwanda and to the 19th anniversary of the start of the Rwandan genocide on 7 April. The photographs of the visitors in the memorials beautiful garden in Kigali provided a striking image as both figures paid tribute not only to those who were lost in 1994 but also to the victims and survivors.. The abiding slogan never again is often repeated at events such as these, but part of the commitment to ensuring that such events are never repeated is guaranteeing accountability for the atrocities of the past. To what extent do these words merely comprise useful phrases for formal occasions?. Efforts to address impunity for atrocities committed during the genocide have been multifaceted. In addition to the work of the UN International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), Rwanda has made efforts towards justice in ...

8. Healing Wounded People The following is excerpted from a lecture South African Justice Richard J. Goldstone delivered at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum on Jan. 27 1997. Goldstone was Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. He now sits on South Africas Constitutional Court. Judge Goldstone entitled his lecture Healing Wounded People, noting that too infrequently is justice looked at as a form of therapy for victims who cannot really begin their healing process until there has been some public acknowledgment of what has befallen them. Judge Goldstone has given his express permission to reproduce this article here. The one thing I have learned in my travels to the former Yugoslavia and in Rwanda and in my own country is that where there have been egregious human rights violations that have been unaccounted for, where there has been no justice, where the victims have not received any acknowledgment, where they have been forgotten, ...

One-sided justice is underway at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR). The ICTRs Chief Prosecutor and the United Nations Security Council must take all necessary measures to correct the current trend and ensure impartial justice applying to crimes against humanity committed by all the parties- winners and losers. Six years after the creation of the ICTR, only those who lost power in Rwanda in 1994 have been indicted and are being prosecuted by the ICTR while the victorious Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF)s notorious suspected war criminals enjoy total and complete impunity for crimes against humanity committed and still being committed in Rwanda since October 1990 and in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since 1996. This selective form of justice has encouraged the RPFs military and political leaders to continue the killings of civilians without fear of prosecution. More than 3,000,000 Hutu civilians have already been killed by the RPFs armed wing, the Rwandan Patriotic ...

A former military chaplain who used his position to influence and promote the abduction and killing of Tutsi refugees in Rwanda was found guilty of genocide and sentenced to 25 years in prison by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda today.. Emmanuel Rukundo, 50, is one of two members of the clergy accused of orchestrating the killing of ethnic minority Tutsis during the Rwandan massacre in 1994 and was convicted by three judges for genocide, murder as a crime against humanity and extermination as a crime.. The tribunal, which prosecutes people accused of being involved in the Rwandan genocide, found that on at least four occasions in April and May 1994, Rukundo played an integral role in kidnapping and killing Tutsi refugees who sought shelter in a seminary.. The court found that Rukundo was present as soldiers in the Rwandan armed forces abducted and killed a woman in 1994 and was guilty of sexually assaulting another woman. The court said Rukundo had kept a list of local Tutsis ...
The complaint being considered by the ICC presents evidence of the systematic use of brutal violence, that at times resulted in the death of detainees, while in the custody of UK Services Personnel. And it claims there is evidence of brutality combined with cruelty and forms of sadism, including sexual abuse, and sexual and religious humiliation. It points to the widespread use of hooding, forcing people to remain in painful stress positions, sleep deprivation, noise bombardment and deprivation of food and water. These interrogation techniques were used by British soldiers in Northern Ireland before being banned in 1972. There are clear patterns of the banned techniques being used in a variety of different UK facilities [in Iraq] ... from 2003 to 2008, says the complaint. And evidence suggests that failures to follow-up on or ensure accountability for ending such practices became a cause of further abuse. The obvious conclusion is that such mistreatment was systematic ...
As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I decry the actions of the US government in enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen.. But I seriously doubt that the Saudi, or US governments, will allow safe passage for innocent civilians, and this is why.. Do you remember the scene in the film Avatar, and I am paraphasing here, where the General decides to create a crater so deep in the memories of the Navi people, that they will never dare to fight against the mining coalition which is destroying their planet,, ever again?. This is precisely what the US and Saudi Government have, essentially, vowed to do in Yemen. They will create hundreds of killing fields, so that the people of Yemen, will never again fight their rule, and will be pacified into accepting whatever puppet government the Saudis and the US slide into Saana.. There will be no humanitarian aid with which to comfort those left standing; all we will see here, is a slaughter, courtesy of the genocidal Butcher of Yemen, Saudi Arabias Prince ...

On March 24, 1999, the eyes of the world turned to Kosovo as aircraft from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization began to bomb targets in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The start of NATOs air war against Yugoslavia was also the beginning of the bloodiest period in Kosovo since the end of the Second World War. In the twelve weeks that followed, Serbian and Yugoslav military, police, and paramilitaries expelled more than 850,000 ethnic Albanians from Kosovo, internally displacing several hundred thousand more.1 Many were robbed and beaten as they were forced from their homes, which were frequently looted and burned. Scores of women were raped. Thousands of adult males were detained, and many of them were executed, in some cases together with women, children, and the elderly, although the total number of civilians executed is still unclear (see section on Death Toll below). In more than a dozen mass killing sites, government forces tried to hide the evidence by destroying or removing bodies. ...
Hate speech is widely considered a precondition for mass atrocity. Since World War II a large body of case law has interpreted the key offenses criminalizing such discourse: (1) incitement to genocide; and (2) persecution as a crime against humanity. But the law has developed in a fragmented manner. Surprisingly, no volume has furnished a comprehensive analysis of the entire jurisprudential output and the relation of each of its parts to one another and to the whole. Atrocity Speech Law fills this gap and provides needed perspective for courts, government officials, and scholars. Part 1,

Comments by Jared Israel (5-16-00). [emperors-clothes]. During the war against Yugoslavia, Western politicians and the media claimed Yugoslav forces deliberately drove masses of ethnic Albanians out of Kosovo. They said it was planned in advance. Some opponents of bombing supported this view, engaging in a mock criticism of the US government, saying it demonstrated its callousness by bombing the Serbs when it knew the Serbs would then turn on the Albanians and drive them out. Thus NATO and its semi-opponents agreed: Albanians were forced out by the Serbs.. But were they?. In his article Cooking the books - NATOs claims of ethnic cleansing challenged, Michel Chossudovsky points out that according to official Western figures, relatively more Serbs than Albanians fled Kosovo during the bombing. Doesnt that utterly contradict the official ethnic-cleansing theory?. I have interviewed Ethnic Serbs, Jews and Albanians who say the Albanian refugees were in fact organized - and ordered - ...
In its official response to the United Nations Report on potential war crimes committed during Israels invasion of the Gaza Strip last year, the Israeli military admitted that Israeli troops did fire white phosphorus artillery shells into a United Nations compound in violation of international law.During Israels 3-week long invasion of Gaza that began on December 27, 2008 and ended on January 20, 2009, journalists were prevented from entering Gaza by Israeli forces, and only months afterward were United Nations officials like South African Judge Richard Goldstone, and his delegation able to enter to examine the evidence of possible war crimes. Even so, the UN team did find evidence of hundreds of instances of possible war crimes by Israeli troops, and nearly 30 violations by Palestinian resistance fighters in Gaza. Richard Goldstone and his team called on both Israel and the Hamas government in Gaza to investigate these allegations.. The Israeli government issued its official response to the ...

Now that the CIAs proxy army has murdered Gadhafi, what next for Libya?. If Washingtons plans succeed, Libya will become another American puppet state. Most of the cities, towns, and infrastructure have been destroyed by air strikes by the air forces of the US and Washingtons NATO puppets. US and European firms will now get juicy contracts, financed by US taxpayers, to rebuild Libya. The new real estate will be carefully allocated to lubricate a new ruling class picked by Washington. This will put Libya firmly under Washingtons thumb.. With Libya conquered, AFRICOM will start on the other African countries where China has energy and mineral investments. Obama has already sent US troops to Central Africa under the guise of defeating the Lords Resistance Army, a small insurgency against the ruling dictator-for-life.

The Lords Resistance Army (LRA) continues to pose a regional threat for civilians, children and women, particularly in the Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan. While no longer present in Uganda, the Ugandan Armed Forces (UPDF) are actively pursuing the LRA within the sub-region, as part of a regional African Union military force. This forms part of a broader Regional Strategy on the LRA of the African Union and the United Nations (led by the UN Office for Central Africa (UNOCA)) developed in the Spring, 2012. In addition, some Ugandan children and women remain associated with the LRA, who are at times able to escape, are captured or otherwise left behind; these survivors are in need of support to return to Uganda and reintegrate within Ugandan society ...
Decades of feminist research have framed rape and sexual assault as a womens issue, leaving little room for the experiences of male victims. But a new study published in the Journal of Gender Studies suggests that feminist theory, with its focus on the gendered nature of rape, can also help us understand the stigmas, social constructions and realities associated with male rape.
A renewed effort by African Union troops to fight the Lord Resistance Army in four countries has improved the lives of many civilians once terrorized by the rebels.

On January 25, the New York Times posted an article by their Israel correspondent, Jodi Rudoren, about a new Israeli film, Censored Voices, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this past weekend. Directed by Mor Loushy, Censored Voices is the latest in a series of movies by leftist Israeli filmmakers who have won awards abroad by presenting harsh looks at their own society. The film deals with Israeli war crimes committed during the 1967 war between Israel and Egypt, Syria, and Jordan. But while Rudorens article performs a valuable service in drawing attention to the film, it also perpetuates one of the main myths about that war.. Based largely on interviews with Israeli soldiers-conducted in 1967, and heavily censored at the time-Censored Voices documents Israeli soldiers summarily executing prisoners and evacuating Arab villages in a manner that one fighter likened to the Nazis treatment of European Jews. Israeli atrocities in that war have been known for quite a while, ...
For years, Iranian inside and outside the country have been trying to collect enough evidence to present to the International Court of Human rights so that the Court considers the crimes committed by the Iranian regime as crimes against humanity. The list of crimes goes back to the begining of the establishment of the Islamic regime in 1979 and throughout the 1980s, especially the systematic mass killings of thousands of prisoners in 1988 and the so-called ´´chain-killings´´ of 1990s and the recent atrocities of post-presidential elections.. On 28 August 2009, a group of Iranians gathered at the International Criminal Court in the Hague, where executive members of the Committee Against Execution and Stoning had a press conference and then met up with the Court authorities and presented their dossier and urges the Court to consider the atrocities by the Islamic regime as crimes against humanity. The representative of the Counrt promised to look at the evidence and send a file number to the ...
