Last quote by Theodor Meron

We in international criminal tribunals cannot have any political agenda. We cannot ask what kind of judgment will please people. Acquittals are always controversial and they will be particularly controversial when you speak of an area which is very highly politicized. Where the animosity between ethnic and national groups are still continuing despite all the progress that has been made. So I think that acquittals, from time to time, are the sign of a mature system. Of an objective system. Of a neutral system which does not seek to find somebody guilty but wants to render a just judgment.

You have hundreds of witnesses. You have mega-crimes committed over a long period of time. In the case of Mr. Karadzic for example, allegations pertain to crimes committed in lots of municipalities. Every single one of them has to be correctly addressed. And we are doing our best to speed trials up. We are constantly aware of the fact that one of the due process rights is the right to a speedy trial. Has this been perfect? No. But have we produced justice? Yes.”.
