Speaking today the Foreign Office Minister said:
“I was sorry to hear of the death of Antonio Cassese. Judge Cassese was a distinguished jurist who dedicated a considerable amount of his time over the last few years to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon working tirelessly as its President. He has been a dedicated and hard working partner since his days as President of the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia, and has been a model to us all with his commitment to combating impunity, to the principles of international law and the fair delivery of justice.
On behalf of the United Kingdom I offer my deepest condolences to his family and colleagues.”
