Patrick Lipton Robinson, OJ (born 29 January 1944, in Jamaica), is the President of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, a position he was elected to in November 2008. He was first elected to the Tribunal in 1998 and has been re-elected twice since. In 2004, he presided over the trial of Slobodan Milošević, the former Yugoslav president and the first former head of state to be tried for war crimes.

He will be discussing on the interaction of the two legal systems (common law adversarial and civil law inquisitorial) in the work of the Tribunal and the impact of that interaction on the fairness of trials.

Congressman Smith will be discussing “Budgetary Effects on Our National Security.”  While our economy is recovering from a devastating recession, our nation faces new threats to economic growth.  Sequestration, the debt ceiling, climbing deficits, and some Members of Congress using our regular appropriations process as a bargaining chip have placed our national security and economic health in jeopardy.

Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to hear from a senior member of the House of Representatives.
