Abstract

Much ink has been expended over the debate as to the effectiveness or otherwise f international law. Scholars have expressed the view that international law is in fact not law. They contend that international law lacks the crucial character of municipal law with clearly defined apparatus for enforcement. To such scholars, they have failed to identify the police men of international law, the courts for trial, for international crimes and the prisons for the enforcement of sanctions for international crimes. However strong their positions may be, so much evolution in the field of international law have completely eclipsed the views of such skepticshave since become redundant as international law has since asserted itself as a veritable instrument of both national and municipal coercion and development. International law can no longer be derided for the absence of enforceability for several reasons. The trial and convictions of the Nuremberg and Tokyo international military war tribunals post second World War (1939-1945) had largely buried the vestiges of the accusation of international law not really being law.
