Islamabad, June 17, 2021 (PPI-OT):British barrister Karim Khan took over as the International Criminal Court’s top prosecutor on Wednesday with a pledge to improve its track record by taking only its strongest cases to trial.
Khan, who is only the third person to hold the role, faces many challenges at a time of fierce political pressure on the world’s permanent war crimes. He takes over from Fatou Bensouda of Gambia, whose nine-year term ended Tuesday. One of the challenges for Karim Khan will be as how to bring to justice those who perpetrate crimes against humanity in Indian illegally occupied territory of Kashmir.
