Redressing Miscarriages of Justice: Practice and Procedure in National and International Criminal Law Cases
Geert-Jan Alexander Knoops
Professor Knoops’ work functions not only as an essential textbook but also as a practical guide for practitioners on the procedural mechanisms available to them after they have exhausted all locally available remedies for redressing miscarriages of justice.
Redressing Miscarriages of Justice in (Inter)national Criminal Cases succinctly analyzes techniques and practices before both national courts and international criminal tribunals, attempting to answer such questions as “when is a conviction safe or unsafe” and “when and how to assess and introduce fresh evidence to reopen a criminal case.” While addressing, inter alia, the role of human rights protection and forensic sciences in this area, the text develops a legal framework which is instrumental for practitioners dealing with review procedures before domestic courts (U.S., U.K., Canada, the Netherlands) and international criminal tribunals such as the ICTY, ICTR and ICC.
