THIS TRIAL CHAMBER of the International Tribunal for the Prosecution of Persons Responsible for Serious Violations of International Humanitarian Law Committed in the Territory of the Former Yugoslavia since 1991 ("International Tribunal"),

Proprio motu,

NOTING the Trial Chamberís "Decision on Prosecution Application for Leave to Amend Its Exhibit List and for Protective Measures", issued 11 May 2005, wherein the Trial Chamber, inter alia, granted protective measures to a videorecording,

NOTING that the Prosecution played the videorecording during the hearing on 1 June 2005 in public session in the Milosevic proceedings,1

NOTING the Trial Chamberís "Order on Videorecording Played During Hearing on 1 June 2005", issued on 6 June 2005, in the Milosevic proceedings, which (1) considered that, due to the widespread publicity in the media that the videorecording has attracted, the Trial Chamber was minded to lift the protective measures with respect to the videorecording ex proprio motu in the absence of any objection from the Prosecution; and (2) ordered that the Prosecution shall make in writing any submission as to why the Trial Chamber should not lift the protective measures with respect to the videorecording,

CONSIDERING the Prosecutionís submission during the hearing in the Milosevic proceedings on 7 June 2005, that it does not object to the Trial Chamber lifting the protective measures in connection with the videorecording,

CONSIDERING that the Trial Chamber finds that there is no longer any reason for the protective measures to attach to the video recording,

PURSUANT to Rules 53 and 54 of the Rules of Procedure and Evidence of the International Tribunal,

HEREBY LIFTS the protective measures in connection with the videorecording.

 

Done in both English and French, the English text being authoritative.
