Tribunal filled to capacity for rendering of Karadžić judgement

| The Hague |

Due to the public’s high interest in attending the delivery of the trial judgement for Radovan Karadžić on 24 March, all available spaces in and around the Tribunal are now at maximum capacity.

Following the closure of the accreditation procedure, the Tribunal has registered requests for attendance from over 150 victims, more than 200 journalists, over 50 diplomats and state representatives and more than 100 academics, researchers and civil society representatives.

To accommodate as many visitors as possible, the Tribunal is utilizing all available space within its building, as well as additional space in the nearby World Forum conference centre. The entire area around the Tribunal will be sealed off on the day, and access will be controlled by the Dutch police.

The Tribunal has no further capacity to accommodate additional guests and advises the public that only individuals already registered by the Tribunal through the accreditation procedure will be allowed access to the ICTY building and/or the nearby area.


Court proceedings can be followed on the Tribunal’s website www.icty.org
