Kwon O-gon Ep221

World Ch. Schedule : TUE 08:00 KST

Kwon O-gon, a former ICTY judge who practiced law for 37 years

After sitting in the Korean court of law for more than two decades, Kwon O-gon became the first Korean judge to preside over the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), where he served for the past 15 years. ICTY is a United Nations court of law established in 1993 for the purpose of trying individuals accused of committing crimes against humanity and other war crimes during the conflicts in Yugoslavia in the 1990s. It especially drew international attention when the former heads of state were put on trial.

During the interview, Judge Kwon O-gon shares his story of sitting in ICTY to bring justice for the victims of one of the most atrocious and devastating wars since World War II. The war criminals that faced trial include Radovan Karadzic, who was the President of Republika Srpska during the Bosnian War, and Slobodan Milosevic, who was the President of Serbia and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and who died during trial.

Judge Kwon resigned from ICTY and returned home earlier this year. Now, he is opening a new chapter in his life and career, as the president of a research institute that specializes in international law. Meet Judge Kwon O-gon and hear his insight on this week's "The Innerview."
