Ken Scott - Investigator in the Hague World Court
Working at the World Court at The Hague

Ken Scott pursues South Sudanese mass rapists and killers the same way he once prosecuted drug traffickers in Denver and war criminals in Bosnia: by first meeting victims and their families.  “You’ve got to hear their stories. You always have to see the crime scene. There is nothing like being there,” Scott said during a recent interview at his Capitol Hill home.

In a legal career spanning four decades, Scott prosecuted crooks including Ponzi schemers in Denver U.S. District Court and Bosnian genocide perpetrators at the Yugoslavia Tribunal at The Hague in the Netherlands. He is now a member of a three-person commission that made recommendations Dec. 14 to the United Nations to confront ethnic cleansing in South Sudan.

Ken will tell us what it is like to work for the Hague and the investigation that he has participated in on genocide and other war crimes.
