Shocked by such heinous transgressions of our essential norms of behaviour, it is easy to forget that guilt must be proven beyond reasonable doubt before an individual is judged and sentenced. In proceedings before international criminal tribunals, we must always be on our guard against the insidious inroads of political expediency and the primitive emotion of revenge.

It is clear that in an area of law so thoroughy politicized, culturally freighted and passionately punitive, there is need for an extraordinary measure of protection for the accused if we are to pay more than lip service to justice.
