Louise Arbour – The Prosecutor

1999, 36 min

It’s 1999 and Louise Arbour has a few months left as Chief Prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. We travel with the determined Canadian jurist as Serbian forces are laying waste to Kosovo and covering up their massacre in Srebrenica, while in Rwanda the authors of the 1994 genocide are on the run.

Politicians and military leaders are looking for “peace and accommodation”, running interference as Mme Arbour is fighting to end the impunity of the powerful, and in particular gathering the evidence that will later bring Slobodan Milosevic to trial in The Hague.
