Accountability for the Salvadorean Jesuit Massacre: An Exercise in Universal Jurisdiction
Tuesday, April 17, 2018 @ 12:45 pm - 2:00 pm
Almudena Bernabeu has led the Jesuit Massacre’s investigation and prosecution in Spanish courts through universal jurisdiction, which recently resulted in the extradition of Colonel Orlando Montano from the United States. He is accused of planning and ordering the act and charged on counts of murder, crimes against humanity and state terrorism.
Almudena will talk about the Jesuit case, the political and legal barriers faced, and the thrilling strategy followed. She will also discuss the case’s impact on International Criminal Law and how universal jurisdiction can be a tool to end impunity of atrocity crimes.
