This dossier collects key legal documents in the Sharon affair. Being a legal dossier,
the collection contains two sets of documents. The first set traces the evolution of
Belgium's 1993/1999 "universal jurisdiction" law by making available in English, in several
cases for the first time, translations of successive amendments to the law that first
expanded, and then dramatically contracted, its scope. The second set of documents contains
key pleadings and court decisions related directly to the Sharon case itself, beginning
with the initial complaint filed by the plaintiffs and concluding with the June 10,2003 ruling
by the Brussels Court ofAppeals that the case against Varon may proceed. Several of
these documents are also made available in English for the first time in this special dossier.
