Pohela Boishakh to all!

Bengalis around the world celebrate the Bangla New Year this week and this year is especially sweet because just two weeks ago Bangladesh ratified the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC). Bangladesh’s ratification is especially poingnant coming from a country that lost millions to massacres stemming from its 1971 independence struggle.

If the ICC had been in place then, would so many people have lost their lives?
