This program profiles Chief Prosecutor Louise Arbour and the International War Crimes Tribunal during the Kosovo Crisis. The Tribunal's mandate was to pursue those responsible for the rape, mass murder and deportation of Kosovo Albanians by Serb forces in the former Yugoslav province of Kosovo. The gravity and enormity of the Tribunal's responsibilities and the roadblocks encountered along the way arguably made its job - bringing those responsible to trial and getting justice for the victims - the toughest job in the world. Arbour and the Tribunal's work could be the blueprint for a new and evolving system of international criminal justice. Justice Arbour became Canada's newest Supreme Court Appointee on October 4th, 1999.
