Sterio Debates the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia’s Gotovino Decision

On, November 16, 2012, the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia’s Appellate Chamber overturned a guilty verdict issued by the Trial Chamber against two Croatian generals accused of various crimes against the Serbian civilian population in Croatia during the civil war in the 1990’s. There has been much debate about the quality and analysis within the appellate decision, with some arguing that the decision underscores the political nature and orientation of the tribunal.

Yesterday, C|M|LAW Professor Milena Sterio, an expert on international law, in particular concerning issues related to the international criminal tribunals and the former Yugoslavia, participated in an on-line debate on last week’s ICTY decision.  The debate took place on the IntLawGrrls.com site.  To read a brief description of the case, as well as the debate posts, click here: http://www.intlawgrrls.com/2012/11/gotovina-forum.html
