ORDER IN THE MATTER OF
ALLEGATIONS AGAINST PRIOR COUNSEL
The Office of the Prosecutor:
Mr. Upawansa Yapa
Ms. Brenda Hollis
Mr. Milan Vujin
Counsel for the Appellant:
Mr. Anthony Abell
Mr. John Livingston
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 ("the International Tribunal"),
NOTING the provisions of its Scheduling Order concerning allegations against prior counsel of 24 March 1999, setting out the procedure to be followed at the hearing of this matter,
NOTING also the provisions of its Scheduling Order concerning allegations against prior counsel of 13 April 1999, confirming that the hearing in this matter will commence on Monday 26 April 1999,
CONSIDERING that, without prejudice to the general power of the Appeals Chamber to control the manner and conduct of proceedings in this matter, it would be useful for the parties to be apprised in advance of the order of witnesses to be heard at the hearing,
PURSUANT TO Rules 54 and 77 of the Rules of Procedure and Evidence of the International Tribunal
HEREBY ORDERS that the procedure for the hearing of these proceedings shall be as set out in its Order of 24 March 1999 and that the witnesses shall be heard during this period in the following order, subject to the discretion of the Appeals Chamber:
No witness in these proceedings shall be present in the courtroom or the public gallery until he or she is called to give evidence.
Whilst the Appeals Chamber has set aside a period of four days from Monday 26 April 1999 for the hearing of these proceedings, it appears that there will be insufficient time within which to hear the entire proceedings, and therefore the remainder of the Appeals Chamber witnesses and the witnesses to be called by Mr. Vujin are unlikely to be called during the four days set aside, but will be called at a future time to be fixed by the Appeals Chamber.
Further Orders may be issued as to the conduct of the proceedings.
Done in both English and French, the English text being authoritative.
Dated this nineteenth day of April 1999
At The Hague
