In this court update, Hannah and Fritz discuss the most recent testimonies, the court's puzzling decision to block the recording of the final pleas as well as a motion to label the charge of enforced disappearance as a crime against humanity. Like many times before, the seemingly dry, bureaucratic legal questions that the Koblenz court grapples with during this trial, raise fundamental questions about international law, universal jurisdiction and justice itself.
