Art - About Judge Peggy KuoAdditional information about Judge Kuo

Judge Kuo prosecuted war crimes and crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia from 1998 to 2002. She was one of four prosecutors for the Foċa “rape camp” trial. In July 1992, Foċa, a town in Bosnia, was overrun by Serb paramilitary forces. They took women and girls captive and subjected them to rape and sexual violence for many months. Kuo and her colleagues prosecuted three of the Serb leaders, who were convicted of crimes against humanity for their use of sexual violence. This was the first time that sexual enslavement was labeled as a crime against humanity.

Today, Judge Kuo serves as a federal magistrate judge in the Eastern District of New York. She is the first Taiwan-born federal judge in the US.
