The Tribunal’s three principals, President Patrick Robinson, Prosecutor Serge Brammertz and Registrar John Hocking today held a briefing for the diplomatic community in The Hague.
Some 70 Embassy representatives and officials from international organisations attended the meeting, which focused on the latest developments at the ICTY and progress made towards the implementation of its Completion Strategy.
The topics covered included the progress made with respect to the completion of trials and appeals as well as other issues necessary for the successful completion of the Tribunal’s mandate, including the arrest of the two remaining fugitives Ratko Mladić and Goran Hadžić and the retention of qualified and experienced staff members. The Principals also addressed cooperation with states and the Tribunal’s ongoing efforts to strengthen the capacity of the judiciaries in the region as a crucial aspect of its legacy.
Diplomatic briefings are held bi-annually and allow the Tribunal’s President, Prosecutor and Registrar to update the members of the corps diplomatique on the activities of the organs comprising the Tribunal.
