Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the recognition of Judge Navanethem Pillay's outstanding contribution to the ICTR, in particular as its President from May 1999 to May 2003. Her legacy can be seen in many ways-her judgments, her decisions, and her reports and letters on behalf of the Tribunal to the General Assembly and the Security Council. Navi's daily work in Arusha is less well-known. The chapter presents a few glimpses into that period, as seen by someone who cooperated closely with her. The first public hearings took place in conference rooms in January and March 1996. The initial appearances in May 1996 of the first three detainees were historic, and Navi formed part of the Bench when Akayesu and Rutaganda pleaded not guilty. In May 1999, Navi was elected ICTR President. In the Tribunal's daily life, Navi's presidency was marked by efficiency and determination.
