First Judgment of Appeals Chamber at Special Tribunal for Lebanon

We now have a first judgment by the Appeals Chamber of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. The world of international criminal law takes notice not only because it is an initial sign of life at the latest of the international tribunals, but because the judgment is signed by the great jurist Antonio Cassese.
Issued earlier today, the judgment addresses issues of jurisdiction of the Tribunal and the existence and scope of inherent powers.
Thanks to Maria Varaki.
