Ever since its first hearings in September 2005, the War Crimes Chamber in Bosnia-Herzegovina, based in Sarajevo, has been running at full steam. With the December 14 opening of the trial of Nisvet Gasal and Musajb Kukavica, two former Bosnian soldiers accused of running a concentration camp for nearly 300 Croats, this court is now carrying out 15 trials against 37 individuals from all sides of the conflict. The Chamber is heir to the ICTY, which has already transferred nine defendants to its jurisdiction.
