Abstract or Description

On February 11, 1994, the United Nations adopted the “Rules of Procedure and Evidence pursuant to Article 15 of the Statute 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.” This document would set in motion the juridical apparatus and evidential protocols for the investigation and pros- ecution of alleged war-crimes taking place in the Balkans. Reports of grave wrongdoings in Bosnia and mounting pressure from the international community had prompted the UN Security Council to establish the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) one year earlier on May 25, 1993, in accordance with Resolution 827. This tempo- rary ad hoc institution was granted specific prosecutorial jurisdiction over allegations of crimes against humanity committed across the territories of the former Yugoslavia.
