The Monsanto Tribunal has been livestreamed so that people everywhere in the world could watch and listen to the Judges, the lawyers and the witnesses
We will share with you all the testimonies from witnesses and experts and pleas from the lawyers. As a start, we invite you to watch or rewatch the following key moments (in French, the videos in English will be available very soon).
- Opening of the Tribunal by Corinne Lepage, former French Minister of Environment
- Conclusion by Marie-Monique Robin, member of the organising committee
- Conclusion by Judge Tulkens, Chairwoman of the Tribunal and former Vice-President of the European Court of Human Rights
Judge Tulkens: “We will try to deliver the legal opinion before December 10th, the International Day of human Rights. It will be addressed to Monsanto and to the United Nations. From this legal opinion, other jurisdictions can be involved and more judges will step in. We, as the judges [at the Monsanto Tribunal] have seen, heard, noted and deliberated. Chances are that the international law will take into consideration new issues such as the ones related to ecocide.”
