International tribunals

In 2001, the International Tribunal for the Prosecution of Persons Responsible for Serious Violations of International Humanitarian Law Committed in the Territory of the Former Yugoslavia since 1991 (ICTY) increased its judicial activity and, for the first time, entered a conviction for genocide. The Tribunal implemented reforms to fulfil its mandate more expeditiously and, in that regard, the General Assembly, in June, elected 27 ad litem judges, who would serve with the permanent judges on a case-by-case basis. Permanent judges were elected for a four-year term commencing on 17 November.
