Summary

Commission is a well-established form of liability in ICL.In the Tadić Appeal Judgment,the ICTY confirmed that commissionis first and foremost ‘the physical perpetration … by the offender himself’.Additionally, multiple other forms of commission exist, some of which do not necessarily require that a perpetrator commit a physical offence directly.
