ICTY to welcome the public for The Hague International Day

| The Hague |

The ICTY extends a warm invitation to the public to visit the Tribunal on Sunday, 20 September 2015 as part of The Hague International Day, organised annually by the Municipality of The Hague. This event gives the public an opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of the International City of Peace and Justice, by visiting the Tribunal and other international organisations in the city.

The Tribunal will be open between 11:00 and 17:00, with the day’s events kicking off at 11:15 with a welcome address by ICTY Vice-President, Judge Carmel Agius. Other highlights include an explanation of the role of international judges at the ICTY, by Judges Christoph Flügge and Alphons Orie, and a presentation on the prosecution of sexual violence cases before the ICTY by Michelle Jarvis, Principal Legal Counsel of the Office of the Prosecutor. Throughout the day, visitors can take guided tours of a courtroom, watch documentary film screenings, and explore material from the ICTY archives. Tribunal staff will be on hand to meet visitors and answer questions.

Those wishing to join in the Open Day activities can register here on the website of the Municipality. Free shuttle buses to the ICTY and other organisations opening the doors that day will depart from GEM Museum.

Media are welcome to cover the ICTY’s Open Day from 11:15 to 12:30 in the lobby of the Tribunal and are invited to film the welcoming remarks, as well as visitors enjoying a courtroom tour and presentations. Please note that hand-held cameras without tripods should be used for filming and that lighting equipment cannot be accommodated.
