2010-03-19

Today, the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir, for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
Darryl Robinson, professor in the Faculty of Law at Queen’s University, is available to comment on the precedent-setting warrant and its implications.
Robinson’s work in the creation of the International Criminal Court and in the development of Canada's new war crimes legislation earned him a Minister's Citation and a Minister's Award for Foreign Policy Excellence. From 2004 to 2006, he joined the International Criminal Court as an adviser to the Chief Prosecutor, helping to shape the first policies and strategies of the new institution.
