The Principle of Universal Jurisdiction

Some crimes are far too egregious to go unpunished – regardless of where, when or by whom they were committed and our lawyers can request any national court to prosecute individuals accused of having committed international crimes including crimes against humanity, war crimes, torture, and genocide.

Neither the alleged perpetrators nor the victims making a claim need to be nationals or residents of the country where a trial under the principle of Universal Jurisdiction will take place.

In spirit, the Universal Jurisdiction means crimes can be committed anywhere and tried anywhere. Stoke White have a strong track-record of submitting Universal Jurisdiction applications with world-class legal counsel in the United Kingdom and United States.
