Justice based on witness testimony alone is haphazard at best. In Republika Srpska they are reduced to a minority but without the rights a minority should enjoy. They are also supposed to contain an extralegal purpose: I have seen all too clearly the growing disconnect in the past two decades between resolution of cases on the merits, on full disclosure of the truth, and settlements based on incomplete disclosures and costs.
After being a fugitive for nearly 17 years, Mladic arrived at The Hague in a poor physical and mental state, raising doubts about whether he would be eligible to stand trial after all. Use them to help spread the word. The fault lies with the lawyers who, in the U.
This problem was brought on by the unprecedented, rapid advances in computer technology. They typically keep more information in their computers than the largest libraries in the world.
Judges and juries today often do not see the key writings they need to do justice. This means our system of justice is in danger, for justice depends on truth, and truth on legal search.
The viewpoints expressed by the authors do not necessarily reflect the opinions, viewpoints and editorial policies of TRT World. In reality it did not protect people from further crimes. Each side has their own story.
Truth and justice thus depend upon effective search. Join with me in this obsession. The moment has come to use everything the ICTY has produced in its archives and to continue the search for political and historical justice. They often fail in this duty, not for want of trying, but for the difficulty in finding the key documents.
The judges failed previously, in the Karadzic judgement, to determine that the genocide did not happen only in Srebrenica inbut that the process for genocide had already begun in in several municipalities in the north of Bosnia. The expectation was—as others accused had done—to look back, reflect, and show remorse or even repent.
Law as a Calling This is a core belief of mine, that there is a direct connection between truth and justice, and truth and search. From the closing arguments that were held in Decemberit took a Trial Chamber of three judges almost a full year to deliver a judgement and render a sentence.
Spend the time needed to master the new technologies and share what you learn for the betterment of the profession, of the world.
Mladic appeared in court, a shadow of the omnipotent commander he once used to be. There can be no higher calling. Why and in whose name did all of this happen?
Computers got our system of justice into this mess, and now, finally, computers can help us get out. That is why I do searches for clients and do research on various predictive coding methods. Yes, I am obsessed, but it is worth it. This judgement will close the doors for the ICTY and will shape the legacy—potentially in a positive way—of the ICTY as a legal institution founded with a great promise of justice and protection for the victims of the Bosnian war.
If he had died before the judgement, any time from the closing arguments until judgement day — the entire effort to indict, apprehend and try him would have been in vain.
Empowering Lawyers with the Technology Needed to Find the Truth The advanced predictive coding software and methodologies now coming to light empower lawyers to save our system of justice from the flood of irrelevant information.
It is not based on supposition or theory, it is based on a lifetime of service as a lawyer. Discovery of objective facts is often dependent on discovery of the writings made at the time by the people involved.
Trials deliberating on mass atrocities are like not like any other trials. Luckily the judges and the lawyers do not have the last word. This centre, that came into existence inprovided manpower, logistics, and coordination between the VRS and the VJ with General Mladic as its uniting force.
His trial lasted over three years and was considered—by ICTY standards—an efficient one, given that some trials lasted far longer.

The ICTY did not bring the needed and long awaited legal justice to the survivors, and the search for truth will continue outside of the courts. Luckily the judges and the lawyers do not have the last word.
Justice is based on truth, on what really happened. That is a basic problem in law because facts are usually contested. Each side has their own story. The truth is out there, but requires search to discover.
Truth and justice thus depend upon effective search. Truth in the law means objective.Download
