THE Appeals Chamber of the International Tribunal for the Prosecution of Persons Responsible for Serious Violations of International Humanitarian Law Committed in the Territory of the former Yugoslavia since 1991 ("International Tribunal"),

BEING SEISED OF a "Request to Appeals Chamber for Legal Assistance in Appeals Procedure"(sic) filed confidentially and ex parte on 26 February 2004 by the Appellant Zigic personally ("Request" and "Appellant"), in which the Appellant submits inter alia that the Prosecution is concealing evidence and does not comply with its Rule 68 obligations and also expresses "great concern because of the Decision of 16 February 2004 on additional evidence pursuant to Rule 115";

CONSIDERING that second part of the Request amounts to a motion for reconsideration of the "Decision on Appellants’ Motions to Admit Additional Evidence pursuant to Rule 115" rendered by this Chamber on 16 February 2004;

CONSIDERING that the Appellant has advanced no reason why the Request needed to be filed ex parte and it is necessary to have this Request filed confidentially but inter partes;

HEREBY DIRECTS the Registrar to file the Request confidentially and inter partes, and

ORDERS the Prosecution to file a response to the Request by 17 March 2004 and the Appellant to file a reply, if he wishes to do so, by 19 March 2004.


Done in English and French, the English text being authoritative.

Mohamed Shahabuddeen
