Funding Justice: The Price of War Crimes Trials

Skilbeck, Ruert



War crimes trials are expensive. In a well-developed national criminal justice system, a murder trial often takes hundreds of police hours to investigate, leading to a trial that may take months. Terrorist cases, organized crime, and white-collar crime cases are more complex and may cost millions of dollars. Crimes against humanity are by definition widespread or systematic, so the investigative authorities must find evidence for thousands of individual incidents, often with far less resources than would be dedicated to a simple murder in a rich country,
often trying to undertake investigations in remote areas, years after the events, and probably in a foreign language.
