2009 (English)In: International Criminal Law Review, ISSN 1567-536X, E-ISSN 1571-8123, Vol. 9, no 2, 395-409 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The district court of Stockholm convicted on 18 December 2006 Jackie Arklöv for a crime against international law. It was the first and, until the present date, the only time liability for an international crime has been tried before a Swedish court. This comment presents the law applied by the Court, draws attention to the principles of legality, ne bis in idem, and discusses whether a national court in a dualistic legal system can impose criminal responsibility with reference to customary international law.
