ABSTRACT
Reflects on the precarious legitimacy of the Hague tribunal trying former Yugoslavian strongman Slobodan Milosevic and of universal jurisdiction in general. Question of what is infamous and what is pardonable in international justice; Ideal of international justice as a default jurisdiction whose legitimacy depends on the incapacity of a national court to take on its obligation; Expectation that Milosevic will portray Western complicity with his evil deeds; Momentousness of the sharing of state secrets to a tribunal to the history of the Western nation-state; Tribunal's mundane task of establishing the veracity of specific wrongs done to specific persons in distinct places.
