Investigating War Crimes: Bringing Demons to Justice

6 p.m., DSU Washington Room

by Dr. John Cencich, UN War Crimes Investigator and Professor and Director, Center for Criminological & Forensic Sciences, California University of Pennsylvania
In 2002 John Cencich traveled to a safe house in Belgrade to interview the former head of a Yugoslav secret intelligence agency. In less than an hour, Cencich had what he needed: corroboration of information provided by another spy. This evidence would be used against Slobodan Milosevic in his war crimes trial at The Hague. As the veteran United Nations war crimes investigator will discuss in his lecture, the mission was business as usual for him. 
 
The event is free and open to the public. After the lecture, Dr. Cencich has agreed to sign his new book entitled "The Devil's Garden: A War Crimes Investigator's Story" (books available at the event).
