Amal Clooney: George and I Discussed 'Risks' of Taking ISIS to Trial

"I can't imagine anything worse being done by one human to another", Clooney said in the "Today" interview. "You can't kill an idea that way".

According to the British paper The Independent, in her speech at Murad's September 16 induction ceremony as Goodwill Ambassador, Clooney noted that it was her first time speaking in the chamber of the United Nations headquarters in NY, and stressed that "I wish I could say I'm proud to be here but I am not". "I'm ashamed as a human being that we can ignore their cries for help".

Mrs Clooney, who has in the past represented the former President of the Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed as well as the Azerbaijani journalist, Khadija Ismayilova, is set to act as counsel for the Yazidi people at the International Criminal Court (ICC) where she plans to seek accountability by Isis for the genocide, rape, enslavement and the trafficking of Yazidi women and girls. "I think one of the ways to take action that way is to expose their brutality and corruption, and partly you can do that through trial". The British lawyer appeared on NBC's "Today" show in an interview broadcast Monday alongside a Yazidi woman who was captured by the IS group in 2014 but escaped.

She voiced her thanks to Germany for their welcome, but noted that the suffering she is advocating to end is not just her own, but a "collective suffering" of all women who face the same horrors.

"She did not talk to me as a well-known world figure that people would love to take a photo with; she talked to me as a sister and guardian", she said of Clooney then.

Clooney and Johnson will address the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in NY later today, urging world leaders to lend their support to a new initiative that seeks justice for victims of the notorious terrorist organisation. It's no joke... this is ISIS. "They have sent her really specific threats, saying we will get you back".

"We did discuss it and we are aware of some of the risks involved, of course", she said, referring to a conversation with her husband, Hollywood actor George Clooney.

"This is something I discussed with my husband before I took on something like this".

"He met Nadia, too, and I think he was moved". The multihyphenate was spotted on the streets of New York City's Upper East Side on Saturday wearing a chic ensemble that expertly walked the tricky line between summer and fall, proving yet again why she's one of our favorite fashion muses.
