Gordon Brown, the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, supports a Nuremberg-style trial for Putin

1 min read

            Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has called for Vladimir Putin to face an international tribunal for his activities in Ukraine.

The former Labour leader is one of 140 academics, lawyers, and politicians who have signed a petition advocating for a justice system modelled after the Nuremberg trials of Nazi war criminals during World War II.

The International Criminal Court is already examining Russian President Vladimir Putin for possible war crimes, but others argue that the ICC’s powers are restricted.

Brown said in the Daily Mail that establishing a tribunal would close a loophole in international law “that Putin may use to avoid justice”.
