Chapter Summary

The start-up process for both the ad hoc tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda established earlier followed the pattern of the Sierra Leone Tribunal. The Registry of a Court is that essential body that lays the administrative non judicial foundations for the normal functioning of the ICC. The experience of the ad hoc tribunals had visible impact on at least three distinct areas: (a) the subordinated role of the Registry, (b) the need for an independent administrative support work of the Office of the Prosecutor, (c) the practice of accepting the so-called gratis personnel. The chapter also talks about the structure and functions of the ICC Registry. The substantial changes that occurred in the operational principles of international tribunals reviewed in the chapter had an impact on the practical aspects of the work of the administrative organs of the ICC.
