The Establishment, Scope, and the Completion of the Mission of International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia
This paper will treat the establishment, scope, and the completion of the mission of International Criminal Tribunal for formerYugoslavia. It is well known that this Tribunal, respectively The Hague Tribunal, is established with a resolution of United Nations Security Council, for the purpose of establishing peace in the troubled region ofYugoslavia. Since its establishment, the Tribunal has held many judicial processes, by bringing in front of the justice even the heads of states and people with significant state positions.
Currently, the tribunal is in the completion phase of its mandate set by the United Nations resolution. For this reason, the tribunal does not accept new cases in order not to extend its completion phase of the mandate.
The paper as such, has a practical importance because it will examine the success and challenges that this international court level has faced. Moreover, it will point out also the Completion strategy of this tribunal, where it is presumed that the cases will be transferred to the local justice in order not to overload the court with other cases.
