Abstract:     
This piece, which will be published as a chapter in M. Cherif Bassiouni's three volume work, INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL LAW (3rd edition, 2007), examines the creation and operation of the unique Scottish Tribunal in the Netherlands that prosecuted the Libyan intelligence officials accused of blowing up Pan American Flight 103 over Lockerbie in 1988. It critiques the judgment of the Tribunal and examines the diplomatic consequences. Finally, it evaluates the usefulness of this approach as a model for dealing with terrorist prosecutions in the future.
