Prepare Codification of Principles Established at Nuremberg Trials

Download PDF for this date

A code of offenses against the peace and security of mankind which would enact in international law the principles established by the Nuremberg trials has been submitted in draft form to the General Assembly by the International Law Commission of the United Nations, it was learned this week-end.

The draft was described here today as the first attempt to codify the principles which were the basis of the war-crimes trials. If adopted by the General Assembly, the result will be that international law will provide that crimes against humanity must be answered for by those who committed them.
