Silvana ARBIA

transtlated version

I would simply like to say that what Adama has said is not only a prospect, but it is already there. Last year when there was a decision to acquit Lubanga, so far we have not found any State willing to receive him. So he is in limbo. So I would like to say how difficult it is sometimes for the Prosecutor and the Defence to find a midway, especially to reach a plea bargain, because when somebody is suspected or convicted for genocide, it is difficult for the convict to be rehabilitated in the future. And this is not taken care of in international criminal justice.
