A new concept

Condemn crimes against animality in a universal court

Crimes against animality can be adapted from the crimes against humanity, such as: torture, species extinction (genocide), zoophilia (rape), captivity (sequestration), exploitation (slavery) etc. They can be addressed either by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) or by a special universal court (to be created), able to judge private and public persons (individuals, states, corporations, national and multinational firms or labs etc), accountable for their crimes against animality (or against animal rights, if some legal rights for animals are to be proclaimed and universally recognized in the future).
