The first case, on 31 March 2004, is of Prosecutor v. Kanu. It comprises written reasons for the trial chamber's oral decision on the defence motion on abuse of process due to infringement of principles of nullum crimen sine lege and non-retroactivity as to several accounts. The second case is of Prosecutor v. Norman for the decision on the first accused's motion for service and arraignment on the consolidated indictment.
