Resolution 3074 (XXVIII).

Adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, 3 December 1973

INTRODUCTORY NOTE: In 1965, the United Nations Commission on Human Rights started its deliberations on the question of punishment of war criminals and of persons who had committed crimes against humanity. Its aim was to ensure that persons who had committed such crimes would be traced, apprehended and equitably punished by the competent country. These efforts first led to the Convention on the Non-Applicabihty of Statutory Limitations to War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity, adopted by General Assembly resolution 2391 (XXIII) on 26 November 1968 (No. 106). In 1969, the Commission, on the basis of the General Assembly Resolutions that are cited in the Preamble of the present Resolution, resumed its work on the detection, arrest, extradition and punishment of persons responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity. It drafted the present resolution, which was adopted on 3 December 1973 by 94 votes in favor, none against and 29 abstentions.
