  • Norge må bidra til internasjonal etterforskning av mulige overgrep i Nagorno-Karabakh

    Årsmøteuttalelse:

    Norge må bidra til internasjonal etterforskning av mulige overgrep i Nagorno-Karabakh

    Årsmøtet for Den norske Helsingforskomité vedtok den 27. april 2016 er uttalelse som uttrykker stor bekymring for økt uro i Nagorno-Karabakh og rapporter som er fremkommet om overgrep mot sivile. Det et åpenbart behov for en upartisk og internasjonal etterforskning i Nagorno-Karabakh, ettersom de nasjonale justismyndighetene erfaringsmessig enten ikke vil eller ikke evner å etterforske mulige krigsforbrytelser. Årsmøtet ber om at norske myndigheter tar initiativ til et internasjonalt samarbeid for å arbeide for at Armenia og Aserbajdsjan inviterer ICC til å etterforske mulige krigsforbrytelser som kan være begått rundt konfliktlinjen i Nagorno-Karabakh og andre relaterte tiltak for å bekjempe straffrihet i regionen.

  • Credibility of ICTY must be restored

    International Justice:

    Credibility of ICTY must be restored

    The Norwegian Helsinki Committee is deeply concerned about the situation at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (‘ICTY’), created by acquittals in 2012-2013 and a deep split among its judges. The concerns have been conveyed in a letter to President of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (‘MICT’), former ICTY President, current ICTY judge and a key player of the institution. According to the letter, the acquittals represent changes in the direction at a very late stage of the ICTY’s life. They “disorient victims, their families, and the wider struggle against impunity ... there remains a strong, unanswered case for [Theodor Meron] to take responsibility for the unfortunate situation at ICTY”.
