In "The Case of the Pope" Geoffrey Robertson QC delivers a devastating indictment of the way the Vatican has run a secret legal system that shields paedophile priests from criminal trial around the world. Is the Pope morally or legally responsible for the negligence that has allowed so many terrible crimes to go unpunished? Should he and his seat of power, the Holy See, continue to enjoy an immunity that places them above the law? Geoffrey Robertson QC, a distinguished human rights lawyer and judge, evinces a deep respect for the good works of Catholics and their church. But, he argues, unless Pope Benedict XVI can divest himself of the beguilements of statehood and devotion to obsolescent canon law, the Vatican will remain a serious enemy to the advance of human rights. "Robertson is an adept QC and this is a devastating case". ("Daily Telegraph"). "Combines moral passion with steely forensic precision...It is one of the most formidable demolition jobs one could imagine on a man who has done more to discredit the cause of religion than Rasputin and Pat Robertson put together". (Terry Eagleton, "Guardian"). "Forceful, wide-ranging". ("The Tablet"). "Robertson has not become a successful lawyer by muddling his arguments and distorting his facts...He writes clearly, at times passionately, as counsel for the prosecution". )(John Lloyd, "Financial Times"). Geoffrey Robertson QC is founder and head of Doughty Street Chambers, the largest human rights practice in the UK. In 2008, he was appointed as a distinguished jurist member of the UN Justice Council. His books include "Crimes Against Humanity: The Struggle for Global Justice", a memoir, "The Justice Game" and "The Tyrannicide Brief", an award winning study of the trial of Charles I.
