Luis Moreno-Ocampo, chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, will give a public lecture at LSE on Monday 5 March. His lecture is entitled 'Ending Impunity for Atrocities'

Mr Moreno-Ocampo will address the issues facing the International Criminal Court as it moves to battle impunity for mass atrocities as it commences its very first cases. Since 2003, the Office of the Prosecutor has opened three cases: Northern Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, referred to it by the two respective states, and Darfur, the Sudan, which was referred by the United Nations Security Council.

Mr Moreno-Ocampo has been the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court since June 2003.

Tim Danie, from Kendall Freeman, will chair this event, which is organised by the LSESU Law Society, the International Law Association (British Branch).

Ending Impunity for Atrocities is on Monday 5 March 2007 at 7.10pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.
