LAW / Criminal Law / General

Written by practicing criminal defense lawyers, jurists, investigators, and specialized journalists, this book criticizes the whole initiative of international criminal justice and considers the idea that it must be abandoned in the name of justice. Has foreign policy trumped justice? How are equity, equality before the law, absence of selectivity, protection of witnesses, and enforcement affected? How are lives of citizens throughout the world changed by International Justice? Asking the burning questions about criminal justice as it is practiced at the International Criminal Court, the ad-hoc tribunals for Rwanda, and the former Yugoslavia, Sierra Leone, this account will appeal to those interested in politics, law, and human rights.

Sébastien Chartrand has worked primarily in international criminal law since becoming a member of the Quebec Bar. He has been the legal defense assistant in cases before the International Criminal Tribunals for Rwanda and Ex-Yugoslavia. He also did a legal internship for the Rwandan Tribunal in 2009. John Philpot has more than 25 years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer, including 20 years in international criminal justice. He has represented clients before the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, including the Appeal Court in the Hague, and the International Criminal Court. He has been the chief organizer of three international criminal law conferences. They both live in Montreal.

"An enlightening book [in which the authors] do a remarkable job of spelling out these sorry conditions and calling for dismantling of the new International Criminal Justice System and return to the UN Charter and nation-based attention to dealing with injustice." —Edward S. Herman, co-author, Manufacturing Consent

"Informative essays and interviews concerning international law reveal to academics the injustices of some political agendas . . . the best pieces in Justice Belied raise interesting questions about why the notion of international law hasn’t lived up to its noble stated intentions." —Jeff Fleischer, forewordreviews.com
