Several international tribunals have been established since 1919, passing through the tribunals of Nuremberg, Tokyo and the former Yugoslavia, until the establishment of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in 1994. However, the legal and legal structure was not complete. Also, the basis on which it was based was not expressive of the will of the international community as much as it was expressive of the will of the victorious countries in wars. Or expressing the will of the UN Security Council, which is run by five of the major powers. However, this would not have constituted a danger to the international criminal justice process, even though its legal structure was incomplete.
