Cr of State - British government agrees to compensate victims of war crimes
The British government settled a case in London's higher court, agreeing to financially compensate victims of torture and wrongful imprisonment during the Mau Mau rebellion of the 1950s (see article below).
We often talk about the best ways to prevent and curb crime by individuals, what about crimes of state? Does this decision set a precedent? If so is it a good one? By what other means can the international community discourage war crimes?
