International Criminal Court Bill [H.L.]
Lord Blaker (Conservative)
My Lords, I want to mention two items listed as war crimes in Article 8 which have not yet been mentioned in this debate. They seem to me among the most important. Item 2(a)(i) refers to "wilful killing" and (iii)refers to,
"Wilfully causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or health".
Are not those exactly the sort of things which our troops in war are instructed to try to inflict on any enemy?
