George Clooney’s fiancée chosen for 3-person panel to investigate Gaza war

British-Lebanese lawyer Amal Alamuddin, who is engaged to marry George Clooney, has been chosen for the UN’s three-member commission of inquiry looking into possible violations of the rules of war in Gaza. Alamuddin is a London-based international law specialist and former legal adviser to the prosecutor of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. The UN’s top human rights body says she will serve alongside Doudou Diene of Senegal, a lawyer who has filled UN posts on racism and human rights in Ivory Coast, and Canada’s William Schabas, an international law professor at Middlesex University in London, who will chair the commission.

I’m marrying up.
