The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) expressed “disappointment” at a decision by the Parliament of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) to reject a proposal to extend the mandate of international personnel working with the War Crimes Chamber and Organized Crime Department in the country. The October 1st vote means that all international staff will have to leave by the end of the year.

On December 12, the War Crimes court in Belgrade found fourteen former Serb militia members guilty of the murder of approximately 260 Croat civilians at the Ovcara farm in Vukovar. The sentences range from 5 to 20 years. This ruling is considered to be the most serious sentence handed down by the Serbian War Crimes Court for crimes committed against non-Serbs. Three other people are currently standing trial before the ICTY for the same crimes in Ovcara.

It could be called the third generation of international justice: after the UN's international courts for former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and Rwanda, and the mixed model of Sierra Leone, the newest and most eagerly-awaited experience - outside the International Criminal Court in The Hague - has its headquarters in Sarajevo. The Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) War Crimes Chamber is a semi-international court housed on the premises of the BiH state court, the highest court in the country since the 1995 peace accords. Ten years after the end of the war, the chamber is about to open its first trial on 14 September.
