(Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) joint criminal enterprise prosecution of former Prime Minister of Kosovo and KLA Commander of Rapid Intervention Unit, for war crimes and crimes against humanity), Prosecution v Karadžić (command responsibility and joint criminal enterprise prosecution of former President of the Republic of Srpska for genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, taking hostages). She represented defence witnesses at confirmation hearings at the International Criminal Court in the Kenya post-election violence case (Prosecution v Ruto et al), and served as defence counsel in the EULEX war crimes courts in Kosovo representing KLA Commander Sylejman Selimi (“Drenica” cases; command responsibility and co-perpetration prosecution for war crimes and crimes against humanity), and prosecution of allegations of protected witness intimidation and witness tampering (Prosecution v Rukolli).
Ms. Rohan has successfully represented ICC and United Nations employees in complex, politically sensitive administrative proceedings (Assaf v ICC ; United Nations v Morin) as a means to protect the physical security and legal rights of international civil servants. In Assaf Ms. Rohan won a large monetary judgement on behalf of an ICC translator who was imprisoned in Zintan, Libya while on a court-ordered legal consultation with Saif Gaddafi. It is a landmark case establishing ICC liability for failure to protect the physical security of employees conducting ICC business in unstable conflict and post-conflict regions and for abuse of office by select ICC officials. Morin involved United Nations proceedings to penalize a member of its Safety and Security Section on various negligence theories due to the unforeseen al-Qaeda bombing of U.N. House in Algiers in 2007 and was successfully defended in Morin’s favor.
Ms. Rohan has written and lectured extensively on various topics in international criminal law including practical trial skills, legal drafting, appellate procedures, investigation strategies and legal ethics. She served in 2014 as an Expert Consultant on ethics in Case No 004 at the Extraordinary Criminal Courts of Cambodia regarding ethical issues raised during the pre-trial judicial investigation phase of that genocide case.
Ms. Rohan organized and edited the “Manual on International Criminal Defence ADC-ICTY Developed Practices” (UNICRI 2011), as part of the United Nations War Crimes Justice Project, published in conjunction with the O.S.C.E. Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) and the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI). The Manual is the first practice oriented legal manual written exclusively by lawyers with trial and appellate experience defending international criminal cases. It has been translated into Bosnian, Serbian, Croatian and Albanian and has been used for legal training throughout the Balkans as well as in Africa and South America. In 2017 she published “Defence Perspectives on International Criminal Justice” (Cambridge University Press), along with co-editor Gentian Zyberi; a collection of articles and essays by practicing defense attorneys describing the nature of defense practice in the international courts. In May 2020 her new book, “Legacies of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia” will be published by Oxford University Press. Ms. Rohan is a co-editor along with Professor Carsten Stahn, ICTY Prosecutor Serge Brammertz and ICTY/IRMCT Judge Carmel Agius.
Ms. Rohan is active in the international legal community. She was twice elected President of the Association of Defence Counsel-Practicing before the ICTY (ADC-ICTY) and is a current vice-president. She is past chairman of the ADC-ICTY Disciplinary Council and a current member of the ADC-ICTY Training Committee. She was also elected to the Executive Committee of the ICC Bar Association. She is an experienced advocate on behalf of defense counsel institutional concerns in the international courts, including in providing comprehensive training and equality of arms. Ms. Rohan is currently a member of the American Bar Association International Criminal Justice Standards Steering Committee.
In 2013 Ms. Rohan was awarded a Presidential Commendation for outstanding service in the practice of international law, and to the goals and objectives of liberty, presented to her in San Francisco by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
Ms. Rohan maintains law offices in The Hague, in Prishtina, Kosovo, and is a member of 9 Bedford Row Chambers international practice group in London.
