ORDER FOR FILING OF MOTIONS
The Office of the Prosecutor:
Ms Nancy Patterson
Counsel for the Accused:
The TRIAL CHAMBER, pursuant to Rule 54 of the Rules of Procedure and Evidence of the International Tribunal, in order to regulate the filing of and response to motions in this matter,
- The moving party shall include a draft order for relief with each motion submitted to the Trial Chamber.
- Unless specifically ordered otherwise, the receiving party has fourteen calendar days from the date of the filing of the motion to file its response, if any.
- A reply by the moving party will be permitted only by leave. Applications for leave to file a reply shall include the reply sought to be filed. Leave will generally be granted only when the response raises issues which go beyond the issues raised by the motion.
- There will be no oral argument on the motion unless specifically requested by counsel for either party and approved by the Trial Chamber, taking into account the need to ensure a fair and expeditious trial. Applications for leave to put oral argument shall identify the particular issue or issues to which the oral argument is sought to be directed and shall explain why the argument cannot be put in writing.
- Where a party seeks to file a document confidentially (other than one seeking protective relating to measures for specific persons), that party must first, on an ex parte basis and before filing it, seek leave from the Pre-Trial Judge to file the document confidentially.
Done in both English and French, the English version being authoritative.
