LUIS MORENO-OCAMPO TO APPEAR ON TVO'S AGENDA WITH STEVE PAIKIN, WEDNESDAY MAY 11 AT 8 PM

  • The International Criminal Court's first Prosecutor will also be featured in the World Broadcast Premiere of the documentary Prosecutor at 9 pm on TVO immediately following his one-on-one interview segment with The Agenda's Steve Paikin

TORONTO, May 9 /CNW/ - Luis Moreno-Ocampo, Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, will appear in a one-on-one interview on The Agenda with Steve Paikin Wednesday May 11 at 8 pm.

The discussion, which was taped last week, covers a number of topics including why he took the job at the ICC, what he is most proud of in his time in office, and how the Court has grown over the years.

Moreno-Ocampo also speaks about the challenge of getting states to cooperate with the Court and how his efforts toward international justice are affected by the decision of global powers to take matters into their own hands. Specifically he was asked what he thought of the United States' actions regarding Osama bin Laden and Muammar Gadafhi.

World Broadcast Premiere of Prosecutor at 9 pm

Immediately following Luis Moreno-Ocampo's interview with Steve Paikin, TVO will present the World Broadcast Premiere of the documentary Prosecutor. With extraordinary inside access into how the relatively new ICC works, this timely feature-length documentary by filmmaker Barry Stevens follows Moreno-Ocampo as he investigates and prosecutes some of the world's worst criminals for some of the world's worst crimes. He's a hero to genocide survivors, but has bitter enemies on both the right and the left. Prosecutor offers front-row seats to the historic events that will determine whether the ICC is a groundbreaking new weapon for global justice or just an idealistic dream.

Prosecutor was produced by White Pines Pictures and the NFB in association with TVO.
