Lawyers and NGOs call for ad hoc criminal court to bring Putin to justice

In the face of Putin's long-standing boycott of the International Criminal Court, leading academics at Goldsmiths Law have launched an initiative calling for a special international tribunal to hold Putin and his accomplices to account.

Given blatant violations of international law by the Putin regime in Ukraine, over 90 leading academics, legal professionals, politicians and NGOs from across Europe, (including New Europeans) have signed an open letter calling for a new ad hoc justice mechansim to bring the perpetrators to account.
