Chapter Summary

The basic foundation on which lies any credible system of justice has always is its set of axioms embodying the principle of legality such as ne bis in idem, res judicata, and in dubio pro reo. This chapter provides a historical survey of the codification of appellate procedures in international law generally, followed by a review of grounds of appeal and how they interact with the standards of sppeal. It can be said that the codification in international law of the right of indigent accused to Appeal a decision of a lower international court started only with the establishment of the ad hoc Tribunals. There is sometimes confusion made between grounds of appeal and standards of appeal. Although these terms of art are related they are not the same, and it is important that the distinction between them is clearly made.

Keywords: ad hoc Tribunals; grounds of appeal; international law; standards of appeal
