This text is an approach to the difficulties of assuming judicial responsibilities for atrocious acts. Throughout its pages, it highlights the complexities of the credibility of confessions, not only in the eyes of judges but, above all, from the point of view of victims and society. Confession is not only an individual act but also a social one. It is governed by what the confessor says and what others say: experts, observers, and analysts.
