All States should sign genocide convention to end age-old scourge, says ICC judge

13 September 2018

Genocide will not be prevented from happening again until the entire international community commits to punishing “rampant impunity”, an International Criminal Court (ICC) judge said on Thursday.

Speaking at an event at the Human Rights Council in Geneva to commemorate the seventieth anniversary of the Genocide Convention, Kimberly Prost told States that “our only hope is to change now…to answer atrocity with justice, not revenge”.

She’s been speaking to UN News’s Daniel Johnson.
