Garry makes amicus curiae submission at hearing before Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
By Leslie Ridgeway
On Dec. 6, Prof. Hannah Garry traveled to The Hague, Netherlands, to make amicus curiae submissions together with former UN Special Rapporteurs before the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Court (ICC), which held a hearing to receive arguments in the appeals of the prosecution and victims of alleged war crimes in Afghanistan.

The hearing follows the ICC Pre-Trial Chamber’s rejection in April of a request to open an investigation into war crimes in that nation, which is a member of the ICC.
“It was an honor and privilege to participate in these important proceedings on behalf of victims who have waited far too long for justice,” said Garry, who directs the International Human Rights Clinic at USC Gould. “It is my hope that the Appeals Chamber does the right thing and corrects the Pre-Trial Chamber’s denial of an investigation which has only increased the injury done to victims of atrocity crimes in Afghanistan.”
“As a citizen of the United States who cares deeply for its leadership role in upholding rule of international law, not undermining it, I implore the ICC to step in and fulfill its mandate where my country and others have failed to address this vicious cycle,” she said.
