When high-ranking leaders order genocide, how can they be held accountable? United Nations War Crimes Tribunals have sought to prosecute the powerful masterminds of mass murder, including Serbian strongman Slobodan Milošević.

Carla Del Ponte was the chief prosecutor for these tribunals in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia. She released a memoir called Madame Prosecutor. Del Ponte has been barred by her government from speaking publicly about the book, but we spoke with her co-author, Mother Jones contributor Chuck Sudetic. Sudetic spoke with Jesse Finfrock by phone from Croatia.
