THREAD #WarCrimes
In 1992 I spent hours talking with Radovan #Karadzic. I had that dubious honour mainly thks to the fact that I was the only Western journo (stranded) in Pale who knew the region & its people, history, myths, beliefs, politics, culture./2

2/ Those bizarre sessions would usually start late in the evening and, over gallons of whiskey, oft went on till the wee hours of the morning. He obviously wanted to know what I had seen in Sarajevo just a few hours earlier (for insurance reasons, in the early months of the war/3
3/ our sat uplink was kept in the safety of Pale, so I kept crossing the frontlines on a daily basis, being shot at regularly but living to tell the story). He would listen with interest but when I finished he'd inevitably tell me that I had not seen what I had seen and that /4

This is Hevrin Khalaf. A 34-year-old Syrian Kurdish political leader. She was respected internationally, as someone striving for peace in the region. But on the 12th of October she was silenced forever. Watch the BBC documentary right here :
On the 12th of October, Hevrin Khalaf set off from al-Hasakah around 5.30am with her driver, Farhad Ramadan. They were heading west on the M4 motorway. Earlier that morning eyewitnesses report, a #SNA military convoy was seen crossing into Syria from Turkey.
This video, filmed by an Ahrar al-Sharqiya fighter, shows the sun has just risen, putting the time between 6.30am and 7am. It was the same time that Hevrin Khalaf was using the M4, to get to her office that morning. #Syria

Donald Trump’s day so far

- Threatens to use $2 trillion in weapons to commit #WarCrimes in Iran
- Iraqi parliament votes to expel U.S. troops
- Trump’s Iran gamble keeps failing more
- This was going to get him reelected? LOL
- Trump is going to prison
- It’s still only 11:30am
For Donald Trump, this is what losing looks like

1/8 Donald Trump has just unilaterally committed an act of war without the approval of Congress. Not even the Gang of 8 was informed.

2/8 Make no mistake. General Qassem Soleimani was an evil man responsible for the death of thousands, from employing sophisticated IEDs used against American troops to recent murdering of Iraqi protesters.

The Shadow Commander: newyorker.com/magazine/2013/…
3/8 None-the-less, this is an act of war, the assassination of a powerful foreign leader, the second most powerful man in Iran, at a time when Trump has just been impeached and is facing trial while ALSO up for re-election.

Looking for reasons to support TRIAL in its fight against impunity?
Here are a few taken from recents weeks:
1. We briefed the UN #SecurityCouncil on the question of #justice and reconciliation in #Bosnia and Herzegovina (5 Nov.) trialinternational.org/latest-post/tr…
2. Erwin #Sperisen, former chief of police of #Guatemala, will have to serve his 15-year prison sentence for complicity in 7 cases of #extrajudicialexecutions of prisoners. So has decided #Switzerland’s Supreme Court (26 Nov.)

Day 2 #Gambia v #Myanmar #ICJ begins, w/#ASSK up first. She declares #genocide is a crime, applied by #ICTR to #Rwanda but not to #Kosovo or #Croatia by #ICTY or #ICJ, because of a lack of dolus specialis.
Gambia has put fwd 'Incomplete & misleading factual picture'. Situation in #Rahkine is 'complex & not easy to fathom'. (same rhetoric as we have heard for years)
Complexities go back for yrs. Claims conflict btwn Arakan Army w/5000 fighters & the #Myanmar Army, w/Arakan Army seeking independence. The conflict has led to displacement & security measures such as curfew & checkpoints, applied to all regardless of background.

Ok folks - Day 2 of the #ICJ #Gambia v #Myanmar provisional measures hearings going to start - important as no submissions yet by Myanmar so, first formal indication of their legal strategy. [I’ll be away on an interview for a bit so hoping we have other “live tweeters”?? :)]
Agent of Myanmar: #ASSK takes the floor as minister for foreign affairs (is this the first time an agent doesn’t have a legal background); #genocide convention “wholeheartedly” signed by Myanmar; not applied to Kosovo or exodus of Serb population from Croatia. No Specific intent
Incorrect factual situation presented to court; though suffering of innocent people. #Rakhine state background - internal armed conflict; Arakan army seeks independence; displacement & conflict, affecting civilians

A palpable revival of #UniversalJurisdiction is underway in Europe.
Here are 7 examples of recent important activities (trials, arrests, investigations) that have taken place only in the last few weeks.
There are certainly more that I am unaware of.
And certainly more to come.
1. #Sweden
>> Arrest of an Iranian national allegedly involved in the #1988Massacre of thousands of detainees. First ever #UniversalJurisdiction case on #Iran to go ahead.
nytimes.com/reuters/2019/1…
2. #Belgium
>> The trial of a #Rwandan man accused of having participated in the 1994 #genocide of the Tutsi minority is currently underway.

Arrest in #Sweden over 1988 prison massacre in #Iran.
This is what we know so far.
1. A man under the name of Hamid Noury was arrested at Stockholm airport on Saturday 9 November.
2. He is a 58-year old Iranian national.
3. He is suspected of having participated from a prison outside Tehran in the infamous massacre of thousands of detainees during the summer of 1988.
4. He was brought before a judge this morning (13 November).
5. He claims the wrong person has been arrested.
6. The judge seems to have ordered his detention for an initial period of 1 month.
7. Sweden has jurisdiction over crimes under international law amounting to #WarCrimes and is entitled to act when a suspect is present on its territory.

Volker There is some grand bargain to throw UKN under the bus

GOP admit they have no fact witnesses — & Trump did indeed extort Zelensky

@GOP are keen on normalizing Trump’s extortion & absolving RU of their attack on the 2016 elex—this defense endangers our NatSec.

❓Warning❓

Trump careens from one self-inflicted crisis to the next, “like a 12-yr old in an air traffic control tower, pushing the buttons of gov’t indiscriminately, indifferent to the planes skidding across the runway & the flights frantically diverting away from the airport.

Book by ‘Anonymous’ describes Trump as cruel, inept & a danger to the nation

SO’s wakeup in the morning “in a full-blown panic” over the wild pronouncements made on Twitter.

SOs considered resigning en masse in a “midnight self-massacre” to sound a public alarm

George Kent noted specific convos he'd witnessed related to the extortion of UKR that he said were "injurious to the rule of law" in both countries.

For the last 30 yrs US foreign policy supported rooting out corruption/upholding the rule of law. TT undermined that

1. #SyriaWarCrimes
We're going to have a decade or more of murder trials and suits for the many Turkish and US politicians and service members who were complicit in the #Rojava #Syria #WarCrimes. We need to identify verify preserve with a post and preserve all the evidence.
2. Someone told me #TawanCeng is "war crimes" in Kurdish. I have some #Afrin posts with that tag. We need to pick a tag and have every photo and story attempt to give geo-location date & time and as much other information as possible. We may want to have a tag for enemy phones
3. like #EP and maybe last four of the phone's serial number. My point is this, we are going to charge everyone who touched this genocide. And the better our evidence is the better the odds of successful prosecutions. I'm open to suggestions and my @timinhonolulu.com
