Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney to help prosecute war crimes in the Russian invasion of the country
The Ukraine government has turned to global law firms Covington & Burling and Withers, along with human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, to help prosecute war crimes in the Russian invasion of the country. The Task Force on Accountability for Crimes Committed in Ukraine will work to secure criminal accountability and reparations in forums such as the International Criminal Court.
The Ukraine government has tapped several top law firms for work stemming from the invasion. It has also turned to human rights attorneys like Clooney, a lawyer for U.K.-based Doughty Street Chambers who has represented Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and is married to actor George Clooney.
