New York, 13 October 2010 - Ambassador Sanja Štiglic, Permanent Representative of Slovenia to the UN addressed the UN General Assembly Sixth Committee on the issue of the scope and application of the principle of Universal Jurisdiction.

In her statement Ambassador ┼átiglic stressed that the purpose of universal jurisdiction is a noble one ÔÇô to ensure that gross violations of human rights and humanitarian law that shock the human conscience do not go unpunished even if the perpetrators remove themselves from the jurisdiction of the State where the crimes have been committed. It sends a message to potential perpetrators ÔÇô that there is no impunity.
