Abstract Dans les affaires Touvier et Simon, l’objectif est la répression, la plus exemplaire possible juridiquement parlant, de crimes d’État commis dans le passé, prescrits, amnistiés, et restés impunis. L’appel au droit international, face à un manque d’outils juridiques internes adéquats, implique certains positionnements qui renvoient à la question de la place des normes internationales dans l’ordre juridique national, et à celle de la portée du principe de légalité. Mais il apparaît aussi que, au-delà de l’état du droit positif en vigueur et de son interprétation discrétionnaire par des juges plus ou moins audacieux, ce qui détermine, en amont, la réussite des conciliations juridictionnelles en jeu est le projet politique caché derrière la mission de justice.
Abstract In the Touvier and Simon cases, the objective is to condemn in the most exemplary way possible, legally speaking, state crimes committed in the past, that are time-barred, amnestied and have gone unpunished. The appeal to international law, given a lack of suitable domestic legal tools, implies taking certain stances that relate to the place of international norms in the national legal order and the scope of the principle of legality. But it also appears that, beyond the state of positive law in force and its unfettered interpretation by more or less audacious judges, what determines, ahead of times, the success of the jurisdictional conciliations in play is the political design behind the mission of justice.
