Chapter Summary

It is unjust to deny legal assistance to somebody defending himself against a charge of sorcery. International criminal law is a legal growth industry. With the creation of ad hoc tribunals for Yugoslavia (ICTY) and Rwanda (ICTR) in 1993 and 1994 and the International Criminal Court (ICC), which became operational in 2002, the criminal prosecution of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide has been put on different legal footing. A lot has been written about the efforts of international community in the fight to end impunity and state-sponsored violations of human rights. The emergence of genuine system of international criminal law is seen as the victory of law over power. The book looks at the law and practice in the ICTY, covering topics such as the right to counsel under the statute and the rules, assignment of counsel, professional ethics, and the Code of Conduct.
