James Onalaja publishes an in-depth piece as part of a two-part series, exploring the steps being taken internationally to bring Vladimir Putin to justice for alleged war crimes in Ukraine, most notably the International Criminal Court’s warrant for his arrest and the impact of the ICC’s approach on the proposed tribunal for the crime of aggression.
The first part of the article is out now in the October issue of Counsel Magazine and can be read here on page 42.
In part 2, James addresses the approach the International Criminal Court (ICC) ought to adopt with respect to its warrant for Putin’s arrest, consistently with its treaty and customary international law, and the potential impact of this approach on the proposed tribunal for the crime of aggression.
Part Two of the article can be read here.
James begins his six months posting as a Visiting Professional at the ICC’s Office of Public Counsel for the Defence this month.
