Luis Moreno-Ocampo

Luis Moreno-Ocampo was the ICC's first Prosecutor from June 2003 to June 2012. His office examined 17 of the most serious crises of the 21st century, including Iraq, Korea, Afghanistan, and Palestine. He conducted investigations in seven different countries, presenting charges against Muammar Gaddafi for crimes against humanity committed in Libya, the President of the Sudan Omar Al Bashir for genocide in Darfur, and Joseph Kony. The trial convicting Thomas Lubanga concluded during his tenure. Oxford University Press will publish a book describing his practice entitled “War and justice in the 21st Century” in the coming months. Previously, Mr. Moreno-Ocampo played a crucial role during the transition to democracy in Argentina as the deputy prosecutor in the "Junta trial" in 1985 and the Prosecutor in the trial against a military rebellion in 1991. He was a visiting professor at Stanford University and Harvard University.
