Charles Taku
 Anonymous  Contact Contributor
Dr. Charles Taku represented clients at the ICC and the International Tribunal for Sierre Leone and ICTR, published a book Contextual Foundations of International Criminal Jurisprudence: Selected Cases: An Insider's Perspective (Nov. 2012), and wrote the first essay in Justice Belied: The Unbalanced Scales of International Criminal Justice (Oct. 2014).

Charles Taku attributes the imbalance of the "scales of international criminal justice" to (1) super powers controlling the weaker states, (2) the ICC not anticipating acquittals and thereby never forming a provision for them (3) Victor's justice being the only justice served and (4) the system voiding the presumption of innocence prior to trial.

Taku's ICTR client, Rwandan Major F.X. Nzuwonemeye, was acquitted but remains with others in a "safe house" in Arusha, Tanzania, with no financial compensation. It would be a death sentence for him and others in this situation to return to Rwanda. Countries where the victims can live without fear are not offering them refuge, partially because Rwanda has influenced the Security Council with his false propaganda.
