Training for Ukraine judges
The news in 60 seconds
A training programme for Ukrainian judges set to conduct trials for war crimes has begun as part of UK efforts to secure justice for the country’s citizens. More than 90 judges will undergo the UK-funded sessions, being held under the supervision of Sir Howard Morrison KC, a former judge at the International Criminal Court. Sir Howard was appointed by the former attorney general in March to act as an independent advisor to the prosecutor general of Ukraine, now Andriy Kostin, as part of a wider support package.
