He was the first fox huntsman to be summoned to court for defying the law which came into force last year in England and Wales.
Ten years ago, Representative Walter Jones (R-NC) introduced The War Crimes Act of 1996. This statute was one of many in the mid-1990s devoted to the principle of extraterritoriality: the extension of U.S. laws to other countries.
