Quashing Universal Jurisdiction

Published: June 19, 2009, Author: JayTaber

Welcoming Criminal Enterprise

In 2003, the United States and Israel bullied Belgium into abolishing universal jurisdiction used to prosecute war criminals and perpetrators of crimes against humanity. Today, the United States, Israel and China are pressuring Spain to do the same. The plan of these perpetrators of international crimes is logical: if no country will hold them accountable, they can continue to act with impunity; the world then becomes a welcoming place for transnational criminal enterprise.
