The Reckoning: The Battle for the International Criminal Court (DVD)
- Instructional Video
Though over 120 countries voted to create the International Criminal Court (ICC), some of the most powerful nations in the world - China, Russian, and the United States - refused to ratify it, the U.S. claiming, among other things, that the ICC's authority to second-guess the actions taken and the results reached by participating states was an infringement on national sovereignty. Nevertheless, prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo issues arrest warrants for the rebel leaders of the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda, puts four Congolese warlords on trial in The Hague, charges the president of Sudan with genocide and war crimes in Darfur, challenges the UN Security Council to have him arrested, and shakes up the Colombian criminal justice system.
