Prosecutors urge continued support of international tribunals

An article published yesterday, (09/02/10), by Jurist, announces the signing of the fourth Chautauqua Declaration by current and former international prosecutors which praises recent developments in international law and encourages continued support of international courts. 

The full text of the Declaration, available here, encourages continued support for the funding of the tribunals and courts as well as fulfillment of obligations under international law through investigation, prosecution, or transfer of suspects who violate international criminal law, including sitting heads of state. The document also encourages countries to refrain from the use of military force and to settle disputes in accordance with the UN Charter.
