Should a person indicted for crimes against humanity be excused from trial because he or she has received a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)? Some suspects fake the symptoms. How can such attempts be detected when they try?    


 


These are some of the difficult and absorbing questions confronting justice systems today. In many international atrocity cases, because of political impunity, the heinous crimes go back decades and the alleged perpetrators have grown old.
