Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the rule 60 of the Rules of Procedure and Evidence of the statute of the Special Court of Sierra Leone. It discusses several cases and their trial chambers decisions. The first case is of Prosecutor v. Gbao, Ruling on the Issue of the Refusal of the Third Accused, Augustine Gbao, to Attend Hearing of the Special Court for Sierra Leone on 7 July 2004 and Succeeding Days, 12 July 2004. From the Chamber's perspective, it is particularly noteworthy that the international law practice is on two levels: (i) the practice at the European Court of Human Rights ("ECHR") level and (ii) the practice at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia ("ICTY") and International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda ("ICTR") level.
