The Politics of the Bangladeshi War Crimes Tribunal: Can justice be done?

LSESU Amnesty International public lecture

Date: Monday 11 March 2013 
Time: 6.30-8pm 
Venue: CLM 602, Clement House
Speaker: Toby Cadman
Chair: Dr Devika Hovell

The ongoing protests in Dhaka calling for the execution of Abdul Quader Mollah demonstrate the inherent politics of the Bangladeshi War Crimes tribunal. The tribunal, set up to try individuals for atrocities committed during the Bangladeshi war of independence in 1971, has been mired in political rivalry since its inception. 

Toby Cadman is a practising international criminal barrister at 9 Bedford Row. He has extensive experience in the areas of war crimes, terrorism, extradition and human rights law. He has provided advice and training to judges, prosecutors and defence lawyers throughout the Balkans and Southeast Asia. He is currently part of the legal team at the Bangladeshi war crimes tribunal. 

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. For any queries email Stephanie David on s.l.david@lse.ac.uk or call 07702794869.
