Chapter Summary

On 3 July 2001, the eyes of the world were on Courtroom 1 of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague. Slobodan Milošević, the former President of Yugoslavia, was about to make his initial court appearance to enter a plea on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity in relation to the events in Kosovo during 1998-1999. Although Richard May will be remembered mostly by the public for his role in the Milošević trial, his contribution to the work of the Tribunal went far beyond that. One of his most lasting legacies has been to the Rules Committee, the body responsible for the review and oversight of proposals for amendments to the Tribunal's rules of procedure, which he chaired for five years.
