By

The Annual Report of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) for year ending 2008-2009  is now available here and previous annual reports can be found here.

In the summary  it is reported that the Tribunal continued to expedite its proceedings. The Appeals Chamber delivered three judgements involving four accused, bringing to eight-six the number of cases fully completed.  In addition the Trial Chambers delivered three judgements involving nine accused and at their peak ran eight trials simultaneously in three courtrooms, taking advantage of interstices in trial schedules. At the close of the reporting period (August 2009), appeal proceedings are still ongoing for  twelve persons, and twenty-one accused are currently on trial. Two more accused remain at large: Ratko Mladić and Goran Hadžić.

It is reported that “To date, the Tribunal has concluded proceedings against 120 accused out of the 161 indicted. The report that follows details the activities of the Tribunal during the reporting period and demonstrates the Tribunal’s focus on its goal of completing its proceedings as soon as possible without sacrificing due process.”
