Chapter Summary

Over the course of her fourteen years as a member of the international criminal judiciary, Judge Navenathem Pillay authored many important judgments, including the first significant judicial interpretation of the 1948 Genocide Convention since the Eichamnn trial, and a seminal decision on hate propaganda as a crime against humanity. Judge Pillay presided over the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Court when it overturned a decision by a Pre-Trial Chamber, headed by Judge Claude Jorda. The Pre-Trial Chamber had refused the Prosecutor's application for issuance of an arrest warrant against Bosco Ntaganda because the case failed to meet the gravity threshold of article 17(1)(d).
