Madame Prosecutor: Confronting Humanities Worst Criminals and the Culture of Impunity is the memoir of Carla Del Ponte, former Chief Prosecutor for the  International Criminal Tribunals on Yugoslavia and on Rawanda. As the current Ambassador to Argentina for Switzerland she has been banned from talking about her own book due to its' allegedly inflammatory contents.   In her job as chief prosecutor over the first International War Crimes Tribunals since WWII, she confronted the culture of impunity that allows leaders to incite and commit acts of Genocide and Ethnic Cleansing without fear of being held accountable.


Linda Olson-Osterlund interviews Chuck Sudetic, co-author of Del Ponte, journalist and consultant to the International Criminal Tribunal on Yugoslavia. Were these Tribunals successful? What did it take to have those responsible for unspeakable acts turned over for prosecution? What have we learned for
holding acountable the War Criminals of today? These and more are the topics of the interview.
