Chapter Summary

The Netherlands is a Member State of the United Nations (UN) and as such it is obliged to cooperate with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). This obligation is far reaching in that the ICTY was established under Chapter VII of the UN Charter as a measure to restore international peace and security. Article 29 of the ICTY's Statute is quite explicit with regard to the obligation of States to cooperate: States are obliged to cooperate with the ICTY in the investigation and prosecution of persons accused of committing serious international crimes. In addition to helping to define the confines of States' obligations to assist the ICTY, the Netherlands has also had the opportunity to help explore the boundaries of the rights of accused before the ICTY. This opportunity arose as a result of the Netherland's role as host State to the ICTY.
