U.S. Department of State supports creation of 'internationalized tribunal' to prosecute Russia's crime of aggression
That's according to Voice of America, Ukrinform reports.
"Again now, at this critical moment in history, I am pleased to announce that the United States supports the development of an internationalized tribunal dedicated to prosecuting the crime of aggression against Ukraine. Although a number of models have been under consideration, and these have been analyzed closely, we believe an internationalized court that is rooted in Ukraine's judicial system, but that also includes international elements, will provide the clearest path to establishing a new Tribunal and maximizing our chances of achieving meaningful accountability," she said in her remarks at a conference at the Catholic University in Washington on March 27.
According to Van Schaack, such a court could have "significant international elements -- in the form of substantive law, personnel, information sources, and structure."
"It might also be located elsewhere in Europe, at least at first, to reinforce Ukraine's desired European orientation, lend gravitas to the initiative, and enable international involvement, including through Eurojust," she said.
