Special Issue on Aggression

The Journal of International Criminal Justice has just published a special issue on the Crime of Aggression after Kampala.  The issue marks the 10th Anniversary of the Journal, whose former editor-in-chief is the late Judge Cassese.

The issue is highly recommended, in part because the Kampala compromise was very complicated -- both in terms of its negotiating history as well as the actual text of the final amendments.  

Thomas Weigend has an excellent article on Nuremberg and the ex post facto principle, which views the Kampala compromise as an important moment in the resolution of that problem. Kevin Jon Heller has a nice piece on the legal status of the "understandings" that were adopted along with the compromise -- an issue that until now has been woefully under-analyzed, and brings to my mind the uncertain legal status of the Elements of Crimes, and why they weren't simply formally included in the Rome Statute.  Marko Milanovic has an impressive article about legality and custom in the amendments, which builds on the analysis from his previous article about the Rome Statute and whether its provisions are substantive or merely jurisdictional.

Other contributions were written by Kirsten Sellars, Erin Creegan, Alexander Wills, Leonie von Braun and Annelen Micus, Beth Van Schaack, Mary Ellen O’Connell and Mirakmal Niyazmatov, Andreas Zimmermann, Friedrich Rosenfeld, and Mauro Politi.

The special issue is edited by Claus Kreß and Philippa Webb.

The International Criminal Court has done an extensive job in amending the Rome Statute on the crime of aggression. However, debate is still open on the scale of how justice must be serve about this iniquity.

I feel there are still some grey areas in the amendments that need to be discussed before it can be implemented for the greater good of all concerned. But that's just from the point of view of a dui lawyer san diego like myself.

As Gold Coast criminal lawyers, we do not tolerate any type of aggression. I believe that the International Criminal Court did a good job in enhancing crimes which are aggression. This might be a good solution in controlling the crime rates in our society today.

As a wrongful death attorney, I believe that this amendment should be pushed. I have to agree with Hannah, aggression shouldn't be tolerated at all. If this amendment is enforced, society will feel more protected from violence.

I've heard that some people who have caused an aggression to their partners make it sound that it was aapartment complex injury. I guess this is their only way out since their partners can file a lawsuit against them. Hopefully, this people would be caught because I believe that aggressions should never be tolerated at any cost.

Just a couple of weeks back, I read a magazine featuring los angeles brain injury attorneys who have handled different brain injury cases. Based from that article, most of brain injuries were sustained from either car accidents or physical violence. And the sad part is, in most of these cases, the clients were never able to recover.

Unfortunately, based from a magazine article I read the other day most violence handled by a domemstic violence lawyer in LA started with an argument. And this argument eventually lead to aggressions injuring the other partner.
