David Matas is a Canadian international lawyer who published an article in the Globe and Mail suggesting a mechanism by which Canada could charge Putin with the crime of aggression and make it dangerous for him to leave Russia for he might be arrested in other countries. First Canada would have to sign the treaty making war aggression an international crime. David Harries tends to agree with Matas that the progress should be incremental toward getting international agreement enabling the enforcement of international law. Metta likes Matas’s proposal but wants stronger measures soon thereafter. For the video, audio podcast, transcript and comments: https://tosavetheworld.ca/episode-492-prosecuting-putin.
