France or Germany: State Torturers, don't go to the wrong place

In early 2021, France’s highest court granted immunity to state officials suspected of international crimes, while at the same time the German Federal Court rejected such a protection. The International Law Commission, which is currently discussing the issue in New York, needs to reaffirm strongly that immunity does not protect state officials when it comes to crimes under international humanitarian law, says French lawyer and activist Jeanne Sulzer.
