The Conduct on International Criminal Proceedings

THE CONDUCT OF INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS


On the 6th and 7th of April 2017, the Institute for Human Rights organized a training course on international criminal proceedings. The course was held in the Beirut Bar Association and in collaboration with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL), and is the third organized by the Institute in this field.

The Director of the Institute, Elisabeth Zakharia Sioufi, opened the meeting with a speech in which she presented the objectives of the training, particularly the improvement of professional skills of lawyers in terms of international criminal procedures. She indicated that the advantage of such course is its concentration on practice through mock trials that highlight the role of judges, indictment, defense and witnesses. Similarly, the training course introduces lawyers to the procedures of interrogation and cross-examination.

To launch the course, Ms. Olga Kavran, Head of the Communications Section at the STL, gave a presentation on international criminal tribunals.

Then each of the English judges Keith Raynor and Micheal Hunter spoke extensively about international criminal procedures and they both conducted the mock trials that took place during the two days of training and in which participated all the attending lawyers.

Judge Raynor is the Vice-President of the Court of Kosovo. He is in charge of issues of sexual abuse, organized crime, drugs and weapons and a prosecutor in the Cambodia court.

As for Judge Hunter, he is the Assistant Chief Prosecutor for the Attorney General in the British Armed Forces. He is also responsible in England for issues of organized crime and sexual abuse.

Finally, His Excellency President Antonio Al-Hashem distributed certificates to the participants and congratulated them on their participation in this unique training organized by the Institute.
