Reparation in Cases of Genocide, by Professor Christian Tomuschat

On 26 February 2007, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) rendered its long-awaited judgment in the Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (Bosnia and Herzegovina v. Serbia and Montenegro) - now widely referred to simply as the "Genocide" case.

In this commentary published on the Hague Justice Portal, Professor Christian Tomuschat of Humboldt University, Berlin, discusses the perceived inadequacy of the reparations ordered by the Court and its refusal to award compensation to Bosnia and Herzegovina. Professor Tomuschat also addresses the Belgrade authorities' continuing lack of compliance with the finding of the Court under point 8 of the dispositif that Serbia must take effective steps to discharge its obligations under Article I of the Genocide Convention, transferring individuals accused of genocide for trial by the ICTY'.
