"New Proposals for the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide"
Live coverage, of the Third International Judicial Forum “New Proposals for the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide” in Mexico City, from 9 am, local time in Mexico. The Global Ambassador and Activists for Peace, Dr. William Soto, promotes his Project JUSTICE FOR PEACE, and as part of this initiative, theINTERNATIONAL AND NATIONAL JUDICIAL FORUMS: “New Proposals for the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide”, are being carried out in major cities around the world, with the objective to generate critical constructive thinking on the effectiveness of national and international criminal policy on the prevention of Genocide and Ecocide. The crime of genocide is recognized as a “capital crime”.

The 20th century was categorized as the “century of genocides”. However, the current reality of the global and regional conflicts of the 21st century prove that humanity has still to rationalize barbarity, hate and discrimination. One of the objectives of the Justice for Peace Project is to promote discussions in the judicial, political, academic, and social field, on the convenience of revising, updating and amending the Convention for the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide of 1948, as well as the Rome Statute of 1998, and other correlative regulations. Until now, there have been two International Judicial Forums: the first one was at the Universidad Libre at Bogota, Colombia in September 2014; the second one was at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina in November 2014. Judges of High Courts and Courts of Justice, lawyers, scholars, congressmen and diplomats from seven Latin American countries have participated in these forums. Each one has contributed their knowledge and experience for the project Justice for Peace, authored by the Global Ambassador and Activists for Peace, Dr. William Soto Santiago. The Global Embassy of Activists for Peace is organizing it’s Third International Judicial Forum in Mexico during February, where a delegation of highly educated experts in the field of Rights and International Criminal Policy is expected, and an international call is made to the general public, judiciary members, Control Agencies, law experts and the university community. According to Dr. William Soto Santiago, Global Ambassador for Peace, “Truth is a presupposition of justice; justice brings peace; peace is our right as a human family, and it is the foundation of happiness”.
