harvard and war criminals event
11 Oct 2006
A British-Israeli human rights lawyer who helped indict a top Israeli war criminal speaks about the case at Harvard, where the suspect himself was once a visiting fellow.

A discussion with

Daniel Machover
partner, Hickman & Rose Solicitors

THURSDAY, 19 October, 7pm
Wiener Auditorium, Taubman Building
Harvard Kennedy School of Government

In September 2005, a British court ordered the arrest of Doron Almog, a retired Israeli general and later a Kennedy School
fellow, for war crimes in the Gaza Strip. Almog evaded capture at Heathrow airport and fled to Israel.

Under international law, suspected war criminals such as Almog should face justice, wherever the alleged offences were
committed. One of the lawyers in the case, Daniel Machover, describes the efforts to bring Almog and other suspected war
criminals to justice in national courts of third party states.

Daniel Machover is a partner and head of the civil litigation department at Hickman & Rose, a leading criminal justice law firm
in the UK. Machover specialises in international human rights law, civil actions against the Home Office and police and in
representing bereaved families at inquests into deaths in custody. In 2001, he received the Margery Fry Award from the Howard
League for Penal Reform for 'ensuring the protection of prisoners through tenacious pursuit of legal remedies'. Machover is
listed in Legal 500 as a leading individual in the field of Civil Liberties and Human Rights.
