ICC issues arrest warrant for Putin
CTV NewsMichael Scharf, co-dean of the School of Law, discussed the arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin, charged last week for war crimes by the International Criminal Court. “The very first war crimes tribunal was the Nuremberg Tribunal created after World War II,” he said, adding that the case was related to Nazis kidnapping Polish children. “In the case of Russia, Putin has said he does not believe that Ukraine is a real entity, so he wants to transport children from the eastern part of Ukraine into Russian territory and have them grow up in Russia.”
