The second of my chats with John Cammegh QC from 36 Crime as today we look at the links between Serious and Organised Crime and Terror - examining some of the successes the UKs National Crime Agency have had and noting a failure or two! And generally put the world to rights.
Warning, no bacon was consumed in the production of this PODCAST.
In previous years John gained vast experience in international practice. He acted as lead counsel for the former rebel leader Augustine Gbao on trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity at the Special Court of Sierra Leone (2004–09). Uniquely, this case was the first in international legal history to try the use of child soldiers, forced marriage/sexual slavery and the abduction of UN peacekeeping forces, each of which Gbao alone was acquitted.
Having been barred by the Bangladeshi government from acting as lead counsel in situ for several defendants tried for genocide at the international Crimes Tribunal in Dhaka, John advised local defence teams remotely 2011-14 until the eventual conviction and execution of all but one of the defendants.
