ABSTRACT
The article cites the author addressing the issue of trying individuals and organizations belonging to a defeated nation in a court constituted by the judges from victorious nations. The author refers to the trial of 22 people in the International Military Court at Nuremberg, Germany. These people had been accused of performing acts of violence against the civilian populations of the countries occupied by the German armies. Most of the acts, even those committed by former German nationals outside of the borders of Germany, could probably have been tried by German courts under German doctrines of international law. But there were no German courts, except local and newly constituted courts of limited jurisdiction created by the allied military government and responsible to it. In regard to war crimes there would be nothing unprecedented in the fact that either a national or an international tribunal takes jurisdiction of them. The details of organization and procedure in which, in this respect, the Tribunal strikes out new paths are insignificant and do not affect its lawful authority to act.
