Following the Chamber’s Rule 98 bis decision dismissing Ratko Mladić’s motion for acquittal, the Defence case has been scheduled to begin on Monday, 19 May at 9:30 a.m. in Courtroom I. The Pre-Defence conference is scheduled for Monday, 12 May at 9:30 a.m. also to be held in Courtroom I.

In the case of Radovan Karadžić, last week the Chamber ordered the Defence case closed as of 1 May 2014. Closing arguments for the case are scheduled for 29 September through 2 October with the rebuttal for the arguments scheduled for 7 October.
Finally, last week, Judge Agius, Presiding Judge of the Appeals Chamber in the Stanišić and Župljanin case, designated himself as the Pre-Appeal Judge for all pre-appeal proceedings in this case.
No questions were asked.
