Abstract: 
In the wake of the revelations that arms were sold by certain U.S. Government and White House officials to Iran through intermediaries with the proceeds funneled through Swiss banks to the contras in Nicaragua, Attorney General Edwin Meese III has announced the initiation of criminal investigations.  Several procedural and substantive international criminal law issues may be involved before the investigations are concluded.
