The Hague, 31 March 2006
The Swedish Government yesterday accepted the Tribunal's request to conduct an independent audit of its Detention Unit. The Tribunal's Registrar, Hans Holthuis, requested the Swedish Government to conduct this audit, which will cover all areas related to the Detention Unit's management and administration, according to existing agreements and other regulations. A team will conduct
the audit as soon as possible, and will submit their report to the Tribunal once it is complete. The Swedish Government's decision notes that Sweden has attached great importance to the ICTY and its struggle against impunity for those people who committed crimes in the former Yugoslavia. The Tribunal is grateful to the Swedish government for its support.
