Hong Kong’s War Crimes Trials Collection (‘HKWCT Collection’)

The HKWCT Collection is part of a project funded by the Hong Kong SAR government’s Research Grants Council. The Collection’s website provides details of, and access to, the case files of 46 trials involving 123 persons who were tried in Hong Kong for war crimes committed during the Second World War. Due to restrictions imposed by the copyright holder, The National Archives, it is only possible for persons based at one of the universities in Hong Kong to have full access to the case files. However, other documents are available to everyone. Enhancement on International Law Search Interface has upgraded to a new interface for US materials and International materials under the Int’l Law tab.
