Although the Tokyo IMT focused to a great degree on the crimes against peace charges, the other significant counts of the indictment related to a crime were clearly established in international law at the time. This chapter discusses the findings of the Tokyo IMT on two aspects of these counts. The first of these is the findings on the law, including the applicability of the Hague Regulations, the 1929 Geneva Convention, and customary law. The second is the findings on the facts, such as the Bataan Death March, the Rape of Nanking, and the Burma-Siam railway. The findings of the majority are contrasted with those of Judge Pal, who took a very sceptical approach to the evidence.
