Chapter Summary

This chapter includes some key administrative decisions of the Registrar regarding issues relating to the Civil Defense Forces (CDF) accused. All decisions were not put on the case file maintained by the Court Management Section. The chapter is better seen as illustrative of the types of administrative decisions issued by the administrative organ of the Tribunal which had the primary responsibility for the conditions of detention, among other important matters affecting the daily lives of the detainees, including screening outside visitors and authorizing families and friends before permitting their visits. It provides a few registrar decisions which are of little legal research value today. It is hoped that researchers interested in tracing those decisions, in addition to the numerous internal memoranda and other documents pertaining to administrative issues, can secure them through examination of the Court's archives in the near future in Freetown, Sierra Leone and The Hague, The Netherlands.
