Protais Mpiranya, the most-wanted war criminal in Africa, leader of #Rwanda's presidential guard during the genocide, has been found, buried in Zimbabwe under a false name. He has been there since 2006 courtesy of a tuberculosis-induced heart attack. ft.com/content/1cbe90…
Protais Mpiranya fled into Cameroon and then the Congo, where he fought against Kagame's Rwanda after it invaded in 1996 to uproot the genocidaire encampments like Goma, and fought under Mugabe's sponsorship during the African World War (1998-2003).
With Mpiranya's death confirmed, there are now five of #Rwanda's genocidaires who are wanted by the UN Tribunal, though their prosecutions would take place in Rwanda itself:

1) Fulgence Kayishema, a Judicial Police Inspector from Kibuye

This is TOO EXCITING not to tweet.

#Germany started proceedings against #Italy at the #ICJ for alleged violations of its sovereign immunity.

It’s been a long time in the making. Many of us are probably not surprised. 🫢

It’s time for Germany v. Italy—Reloaded.

A thread 🪡
After the ICJ’s 2012 judgment in Germany v. Italy (link below), the Italian Parliament passed Law 5/2013. That law required Italian courts to decline jurisdiction in claims against Germany of the kind which had given rise to the ICJ litigation. 👩🏻‍💼

Little did they know that the #ConstitutionalCourt would declare that law unconstitutional a year later, in the now-famous Sentenza 238/2014. 🙅🏻‍♂️

#Somaliland and #Taiwan: The benefits

A THREAD

1/14. S/land and Taiwan have a lot in common such as both being a fully functioning democracies with volatile neighbours. Both are striving for international recognition and will not budge to threats or diplomatic pressure. Image
2/14. Somaliland brings a lot to the table. S/land’s strategic location in the Horn of Africa will give Taiwan a gateway into East Africa and beyond. Landlocked countries in Africa can benefit from this diplomatic move such as Ethiopia, South Sudan, and Uganda.
3/14. S/land will give Taiwan an important access to the Gulf of Berbera (Gulf Aden) where access to the Middle East, North Africa and the rest of the world can be established which will boost Taiwan’s export opportunities as well as a chance to make new friends in the region.

Nixon on Larry King Live 1990 via @YouTube
With all his faux pas and shortcomings.
#Nixon was a great statesman and a natural diplomat.
He understood the world better than most of his predecessors.
After him, the USA has not been able to mimic another leader like him in the Oval Office.
I am not being satirical.
#Nixon and his #Domino Theory in Former French Indochina turned out to be quite right.
After the Americans left the region, both #Laos and #Cambodia fell into Communists hands.
South #Vietnam fell as well.

The #ASEAN disunity over AUKUS

The #ASEAN sees #aukus pact increases geopolitical risks in the region, as #aukus is aimed at countering rising Chinese belligerence.
The rise of partnerships in the region, which are not ASEAN-centric causes them concern.

orfonline.org/expert-speak/t…
2/ How have various #ASEAN countries reacted to #aukus ?

They've not reacted in unison. Each member expressed its own views. The divergence in opinion was quite apparent.
Brunei did not speak about it.
Indonesia expressed caution with AUKUS.
Malaysia appears astonished. Image
3/ #Vietnam is more open to #aukus “All countries strive for the same goal of peace, stability, cooperation, and development” & nuclear power can be harnessed for development.

The #Philippines is more welcoming of the #aukus though President #Duterte sounded contradictory. Image

NEW: @DrLeeJones and my book, Fractured China: How State Transformation is Shaping China's Rise, is now out! Here is a 🧵 to explain what it is about. 1/ cambridge.org/core/books/fra…
Fractured China intervenes in the International Relations (and foreign policy) debate over whether China's rise will be a threat to the international order. China's international behaviour is sometimes revisionist and sometimes preserving the status-quo. 2/
IR and foreign policy analysis approaches struggle to explain this inconsistency because they treat China as a unitary actor in international politics. The debate has stalled and become speculative, turning on to claims about China will do or become in the future. 3/

1/5 Hun Sen’s Proposed “Law” to determine single citizenship for #Cambodia’s leaders: Normally a law is intended to defend the public interest. The Hun Sen-inspired law targeting me and barring me from becoming prime minister is simply an act of meanness.
#SamRainsy
2/5 Hun Sen made it clear that, as a reprisal against me, he wants to definitively block me from the premiership. This is not the first time. Remember the amendment to the law on political parties, which specifically pushed me to resign from the CNRP leadership in Feb 2017.
3/5 I did so to prevent my party from being dissolved (it got dissolved anyway in November the same year). The legal and the court systems are being perverted under the autocratic Hun Sen regime.

Today, @WHOWPRO held a press conference on #COVID19 across the Western Pacific.
WHO colleagues Drs Tamano Matsui, Socorro Escalante & I discussed sharp rises in cases, future scenarios, the people who give us hope and this critical moment.

My speech: bit.ly/3y9YeQY
More than 19 months into the pandemic, 6 million people in the Western Pacific have been infected and more than 83,000 have lost their lives.
Until a few weeks ago, our region had fared comparatively well, with around 2% of global cases and deaths.
But…
Now several countries in the Western Pacific are experiencing surges, in part driven by the Delta variant. Our share of global cases and deaths is rising sharply.

In the first 3 weeks of August, we reported over 10% of new global cases and more than 8% of new global deaths.

#US flags 'serious concerns' over #Cambodia's #China backed navy base

U.S. senior diplomat Wendy Sherman says Washington has "serious concerns" about China's "military presence" at Ream naval base undergoing a Beijing-backed expansion on Cambodia's coast.
asia.nikkei.com/Politics/Inter…
2/ A potential flashpoint is Ream Naval Base in Cambodia's Sihanoukville Province, facing the Gulf of Thailand, where China is backing an expansion of facilities.

In 2019, the Pentagon expressed concerns the expansion is to host Chinese assets at the site.
3/ The commander of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command Adm. Philip Davidson told lawmakers that in September 2020, Cambodia razed a U.S- built facility on Ream Naval Base that served as the headquarters for the National Committee on Maritime Security.

#ConsultaETJ

@AbelCartaya te debemos una pero en lo que terminamos, con tu permiso, continuaremos aclarando un tema que comenzamos el fin de semana pero que entendemos de medular importancia: los juicios en ausencia en los Tribunales Internacionales.

Abrimos Hilo👇
1/ El primer acusado juzgado en ausencia en la historia del derecho penal internacional fue Martin Bormann en Núremberg. El Estatuto del Tribunal Militar Internacional preveía específicamente la posibilidad de juzgar a los acusados en ausencia en el artículo 12.
2/ A pesar de esta innovación inicial en la persecución penal internacional, los próximos tribunales internacionales desistieron de juzgar en ausencia a los acusados.
