313 pp., now available.

Dear colleague,

The book ‘Old Evidence and Core International Crimes’ – edited by Professor Morten Bergsmo (Peking University Law School) and Assistant Professor CHEAH Wui Ling (National University of Singapore) – is now available. It analyzes challenges with the location, treatment, and assessment of evidence of old core international crimes. Part I considers the topic from the perspective of different actors involved in the prosecution of such crimes at the domestic and international levels. Part II comprises chapters focusing on the efforts of the Bangladeshi authorities to investigate and prosecute international crimes perpetrated during the 1971 war. Among the authors are Minister Shafique Ahmed, Co-Prosecutor Andrew Cayley, Professor David Cohen, Dr. Seena Fazel, Chief Public Prosecutor Siri S. Frigaard, Barrister M. Amir-Ul Islam, Judge Md. Shahinur Islam, Judge Agnieszka Klonowiecka-Milart, Judge Alphons M.M. Orie, Ambassador-at-Large Stephen J. Rapp, Dr. Patrick J. Treanor, Professor Otto Triffterer and Judge Martin Witteveen.

In his foreword, Ambassador Rapp states that by “providing a wide range of views and practical solutions on how to overcome the challenges of old evidence when investigating and prosecuting atrocities, [this book] can be an invaluable tool for practitioners seeking to achieve justice for core international crimes”.
