The Tribunal’s representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina Almir Alić today gave a lecture to a group of 20 students of the Faculty for Criminal Justice, Criminology and Safety Studies in Sarajevo. The lecture was part of the course in “Prevention of Crimes against Humanity” and students had an opportunity to learn more about the work of the Tribunal and its jurisprudence.
The students showed particular interest in the Tribunal’s contribution to the development of international law in relation to rape, torture, deportation and other crimes against civilians.
During the discussion a student praised the Tribunal’s contribution to punishing war criminals as the Tribunal “thoroughly investigated, prosecuted and adjudicated all cases”. Another student commented that cooperation between the Tribunal and the Faculty has given them the opportunity to hear first-hand about the important contribution the ICTY has made in adjudicating war crimes: “Despite the volume and complexity of information presented, the lecture was very concise and interesting”.
The ICTY will continue its successful cooperation with the Faculty for Criminal Justice, Criminology and Safety Studies in 2016.
