ICTY Prosecutors Meet with Counterparts in Skopje


Today, Prosecutors from the Tribunal met with 20 Prosecutors from across the former Yugoslavia, as part of the War Crimes Justice Project (WCJP).

The purpose of the meeting, which took place at the Academy for the Training of Judges and Prosecutors in Skopje, was to provide Prosecutors an opportunity to exchange experiences on legal issues related to the prosecution of war crimes cases.

The meeting, which was the first of the kind to be held as part of the WCJP, gathered Prosecutors from Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Kosovo.

Commenting on the meeting, Mr. Serge Brammertz, the Tribunal’s Prosecutor, said: “We attach special attention to the exchange of experience and knowledge between the ICTY Office of the Prosecutor and national prosecutors. As the work of the ICTY progresses, we will remain committed to supporting national prosecutions and efforts to strengthen cooperation in war crimes prosecutions.

The War Crimes Justice Project is a 4-million euro regional project funded by the European Union and carried out by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe/Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (OSCE/ODIHR) in partnership with the ICTY, the UN Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) and OSCE field operations.
