Joshua Rozenberg

A Lawful Killing?

‘If the law books say it’s never lawful to kill tyrants, it’s the books that need changing, not Western policy’

Warrants Consideration

'The new Bill is not quite the guarantee of safe passage that Israelis with military backgrounds were hoping for'

Fostering Discrimination

‘Christian campaign groups should direct their criticism to the politicians who make law rather than to the judges who enforce it’

Of Foreign Crimes

‘Will Mubarak stand trial for crimes committed as president of Egypt? We only need to look at neighbouring Israel for a precedent’

The Jury’s Out?

‘Judges like the idea of ending trial by jury for all criminal cases. But where do we draw the line?’

Court Short

‘It is curious that MPs are so unfamiliar with the laws under which they were elected’

Contempt for Court

‘After seven years, the International Criminal Court prosecutor has yet to secure a single conviction—or even an acquittal’

Honouring a Supreme Judge

‘Bingham the judge sometimes seemed to be living on a higher plane than mere mortals’

Political Judgements

‘It is critical to the success of the International Criminal Court that its judges are fearlessly independent’

Taking the Stand

'The principle is simple enough: Parliament doesn't interfere with the courts, the courts don't interfere with Parliament. But it's not unlimited'

“For many, the end of this uneasy year cannot come quickly enough”
