Broadcast of Proceedings at the ICTY through the Internet

The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia is pleased to announce that public court sessions held in its courtrooms, including The Prosecutor vs. Slobodan Milosevic, can be followed on the Internet.

Established in August 1998 by the non-governmental organisation Domovina and relayed on the ICTY’s website since late 2000 (see Press Release No. 546 of 6 December 2000), this service is designed to enhance the transparent nature of the proceedings at the Tribunal and to give a worldwide audience the ability to keep up to date with the latest developments in all ICTY courtrooms.

Available initially in the English and Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian (BCS) languages, this service has recently been significantly expanded in order to meet a growing interest in the work of the ICTY. It now offers the Albanian and French languages (audio only with a picture being refreshed every miniute), as well as full video broadcast for the English and BCS languages.

The various departments involved within the ICTY (Information Technology Support, Outreach Programme and Internet Unit of the Public Information Services) acknowledge the invaluable initiative and instrumental implication from Domovina, the first non-governmental organisation to make the Tribunal’s recordings of its hearings available through the Internet in association with the Internet provider xs4all.
