dc.description.abstract A transcript of an interview with Alphons Orie by Linda Carter and David P. Briand. The interview took place on May 21, 2015 at The Hague, Netherlands, and the transcript, which is represented here, has been reviewed and edited from the original audio version. During the interview, Orie reminisces on joining the defense team of DuškoTadić; receiving training in adversarial trial procedures; traveling to the Balkans to prepare Tadić's defense; the burden of the novel issues to be decided in the ICTY's first case; the high stature of ICTY judges; challenges of courtroom activities as a non-native speaker of Engish, and high expectations around the ICTY's first trial. Orie also discusses challenges to the jurisdiction of the ICTY in the Tadić case; development of the Tadić defense strategy; arguing for the concept of "safe conduct" before ICTY judges; how ICTY trials avoided the criticism of "victors' justice;" the process by which he as nomnated for the ICTY bench and his campaigning in New York City; role of the ICTY in ending impunity for grave crimes; how certain ICC procedures are different from those of the ICTY; why the Tadić trial was shorter than subsequent ones, and the risk of politicization of international criminal law. en
