Latest Newsletter of the ICTY Association of Defence Counsel

The Association of Defence Counsel Practising Before the ICTY (ADC-ICTY) has published its newsletter no. 73.


This edition covers the recent Defence cases in Mladić and Hadžić  and the proceedings in Stanišić & Župljanin where the ICTY Appeals Chamber dismissed the motion that called for reconsideration of the Appeals decision based on the alleged direct correlation of the Šešelj Decision regarding Judge Harhoff.

The newsletter provides a copy of the memorandum sent by the Office of Public Counsel for the Defence (OPCD) at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in response to a proposal from the ICC’s Registry to restructure. A proposed argument of interpretation of drones in the legal context is also provided.

The newsletter looks back at various decisions or judgments rendered years ago by the ECCC, the ICTR and the ICTY but keeps us up to date as well with the current proceedings in front of the ICC, the STL and the ECCC.
