Congratulations to Scottish High Court Justice, Lord Bonomy, for his prestigious appointment to a major UN Court. Story carried on Scottish Legal but haven’t noticed it carried anywhere else.
Ed: I’ve checked. It’s only in three legal online sites. Nowhere in our ‘Scottish’ MSM
Link and snippet below:
Lord Bonomy has been appointed as the UK’s judge on the United Nation’s roster of judges of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals.
Lord Bonomy graduated from Glasgow University and practised as a solicitor from 1970 until 1983. In 1984, he was admitted to the Scottish bar and, in 1993, was appointed Queen’s Counsel.
From 1990 to 1996, he served as an advocate depute and, in 1997, was appointed a Senator of the College of Justice
From 2004 to 2009, he served as a Judge of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), where he sat on many high-profile cases and presided over the trial of former Serbian President, Milan Milutinović.
As Better Together constantly reminds us – the WHOLE WORLD knows we’re too wee, too poor and too stupid to choose who should run our national affairs.
