More than 90 students and teaching staff heard about the 20 cases in which persons indicted by the Tribunal pleaded guilty, and how plea agreements work in practice....
High school teachers from Mostar gave a series of presentations about the ICTY in their respective schools, following a recent workshop aimed at training teachers to give lectures on the work of the Tribunal.
