“JUSTICE 2.0“ presentation at the Supreme administrative court of the Czech Republic
Prague, 12 February 2016. After issuing its international “Call for Justice 2.0“, the Platform of European Memory and Conscience is inviting to another of the series of “JUSTICE 2.0“ presentations, this time at the Supreme administrative court in Brno on 19 February 2016. The international community needs to step up its efforts to bring surviving totalitarian perpetrators to justice.
At an event on 27 May 2015 in the European Parliament in Brussels, the Platform called on the international democratic community to put and end to impunity for the surviving perpetrators of crimes against humanity committed under Communism. Since then, the project has been presented to the public in Prague (13 October 2015) and Timisoara (19 December 2015).
The presentation at the Supreme administrative court of the Czech Republic in Brno is taking place under the auspices of the President of the court Josef Baxa and the Dean of the Faculty of Law of the Masaryk University Markéta Selucká.
„We especially commend Germany for rigorously prosecuting the surviving perpetrators of Nazi crimes and Romania for sentencing Communist perpetrators for crimes against humanity in their domestic courts. However, for countries where no justice is happening, we need the international community to help,“ says Platform President Göran Lindblad.
