Sacking of Carthage was unlawful, Tribunal rules

An Employment Tribunal has ruled that the sacking of the ancient city of Carthage at the end of the Third Punic War in 146 BC was unlawful.

Upholding the unfair dismissal claim, the Tribunal rejected the protestations of Roman General Scipio Aemilianus that he had followed the ACAS Code of Practice in bringing about the complete destruction of the city, the fall of its oligarchy and with it the end of the Carthaginian Empire. General Aemilianus did not attend the hearing and was represented by historian AJP Taylor.

Outside the Tribunal offices Mr Steve Carthage, unemployed, of Dagenham, staged a lone protest against the ‘administrative incompetence’ of the Tribunal Service.
