Last week, the United States House of Representatives passed H.R. 3851, the War Crimes Rewards Expansion Act, authored by Representative Virginia Foxx, by a vote of 407-0. This bipartisan legislation bolsters the abilities of national courts, and the U.S. Government in particular, to bring perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide to justice. Representative Foxx issued the following statement:  “In order to bring these fugitive terrorists to justice, we must arm domestic courts .... This legislation is critical to ensuring that the members of our justice community at home are fully prepared to take on ISIS fugitives, and will hopefully protect future victims from ISIS genocide and the world’s worst human-rights abusers.”
