The Hague, 22 November 2006


The Tribunal is pleased to announce the launch today of a seven-minute video of the ICTY's Detention Unit on its website. The video, with English commentary(other languages will be available in due course) shows scenes from the detention facility, including a detainee's room, the detainees' common area, the lawyers' meeting room, medical facilities, weight room and gym, the
library, spiritual room and the educational and occupational therapy facilities.

The video is an addition to the Detention Unit page on the ICTY website which has also recently added a photo gallery of the detention facility. These photographs are, like the video, available for download copyright-free.

Visitors to the ICTY website can view both the video and photographs by going to the following link: http://www.un.org/icty/glance-e/index-du.htm .
