Chapter Summary

In the General Assembly of the United Nations already in 1948, after the Nuremberg and Tokyo trials, the desirability of the existence of an international judicial authority to exercise jurisdiction over crimes such as genocide was introduced. Whereas cooperation between the United Nations and Sierra Leone on the Special Court most of the time seems to be good, cooperation between Cambodia and the United Nations on the Khmer Rouge trials proved to be difficult from nearly the beginning. Cambodia appointed a national task force for the daily contacts with the UN on the Extraordinary Chambers. In the absence of a trias politica as can only exist within States, the international community - and international criminal tribunals - had, and still have to find, by trial and error, appropriate checks and balances to maintain legitimacy and manage these tribunals.
