Attorney Whitney Harris, 97, Dies

Attorney Whitney Harris is the last American prosecutor at the Nuremburg Trials to die. He was 97 years old. He had a very successful life long career in law and in his retirement engaged in efforts to support international law and the International Criminal Court to the American public saying, "We should not fear to establish the principles of law which will permit civilization to survive."

The U.S., China, Russia and India still is not a signatory to the Rome statute creating the International Criminal Court. However, 111 other countries are.
