Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You can also simplify.
  • calculate the ratio of convicted (or indicted) per civilian casualties for each war / ethnic group
  • do a test to identify whether the differences between the means of these ratios is statistically significant from one group to another.
If it is, you probably have a biased court. If it's not, you probably don't have a biased court.
I used the t test because its appropriate for small data samples in a normal (Gaussian) distribution, which is an assumption that seems ok to me.
