Chapter Summary

How to conduct trial proceedings was one of the most controversial issues during the drafting of the Rome Statute (Statute) and the Rules of Procedure and Evidence (Rules). This chapter examines the procedural regulatory power conferred upon a Trial Chamber by the Statute and the Rules and identifies some of the main areas that require the Trial Chambers direction. The chapter briefly analyses how Trial Chamber I exercised its regulatory power in the proceedings against Thomas Lubanga Dyilo, the first trial proceedings to be held at the International Criminal Court (ICC). It also briefly analyses some of the key procedural directions provided by the Trial Chamber to the parties and other participants by the end of February 2008, with a view to facilitating the efficient preparation of the trial.
