Justice or jaundice? Catherine Marchi-Uhel, head of the UN Intl, Impartial & Independent Mechanism
Even for those who have seen war up close, the conflict in Syria set a new benchmark for cruelty, callousness, and impunity. It capitalized on the public’s repulsion of violence, producing death and suffering not only as an inevitable result of hostilities but also deliberately, for political or media effect. Can these kinds of crimes be ever adjudicated in a court of law? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Catherine Marchi-Uhel, head of the UN International, Impartial and Independent Mechanism – the body responsible for investigating and prosecuting persons responsible for the most serious crimes under international law committed in Syria since March 2011.
