international crime

Could be used to prosecute climate 'deniers'

9 Apr 10 - British lawyer Polly Higgins wants the UN to declare the mass destruction of ecosystems an international crime - alongside war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity.

"Ecocide" would be considered a fifth "crime against peace", which could be tried at the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The ICC was set up in 2002 to hear cases for four crimes against peace: genocide, war crimes, crimes of aggression (such as unprovoked war), and crimes against humanity.

Supporters of a new ecocide law also believe it could be used to prosecute "climate deniers" who distort science and facts to discourage voters and politicians from taking action to tackle global warming and climate change.
