Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the Conduct of Trials before the International Criminal Court (ICC). However, at the present time, no trial was ever held before the ICC so we cannot benefit from any case law that would interpret the Statute of the International Criminal Court (the Statute) or the Rules of Procedure and Evidence of the International Criminal Court (the Rules) in that regard. The chapter refers to the case law of both the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and the International Criminal Tribunal for Ruanda (ICTR) (the ad hoc tribunals) and other internationalized tribunals to give guidelines on how some principles and similar rules were interpreted in the past. It addresses the general provisions such as the location of the trial, the presence of the accused and the duties of the Trial Chamber upon the assignment of a case.

Keywords: ad hoc tribunals; Conduct of Trials; ICTY; International Criminal Court (ICC); International Criminal Tribunal for Ruanda (ICTR); Trial Chamber
