Media Accreditation for Gotovina et al. Judgement Closed
The media accreditation period for the Gotovina et al. judgement is now closed.
Journalists who have sent an accreditation request will be contacted at the beginning of next week with details on how to pick up the tickets. Accreditations will be issued for the seats in the courtroom gallery as well as working spaces in the Tribunal’s lobby.
Should there be any seats available once the accredited media and guests have been accommodated, they will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
Limited space is available in the vicinity of the Tribunal’s building for SNG trucks. The Tribunal does not issue accreditations for SNG trucks and spaces are taken on a first come first serve basis. Trucks parked in a non-designated area will be asked to move by local authorities.
Limited break out boxes for the audio and video feeds are available in the lobby and outside of the Tribunal. However, media organisations must ensure that they have an adequate supply of cabling and power.
