Dutch Propose International Tribunal To Prosecute MH17 Suspects

According to Reuters, sources familiar with the discussions say The Netherlands is discussing with its allies an international tribunal to prosecute those suspected of downing a Malaysian airliner over rebel-held eastern Ukraine last year. The chance of a successful prosecution is considered slim at best. However, the Dutch still hope that by pushing for a UN-style court with the backing of Western allies, they could pressure Russia--whose role in the process is critical--into cooperating.
