THIS TRIAL CHAMBER of 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 ("International Tribunal"),

BEING SEISED OF the "Amended Croatia Indictment and Prosecutionís Motion for Further Variation of the Trial Chamberís Order of 17 September 2002", filed by the Prosecution on 23 October 2002, in which the Prosecution seeks a one month extension of the time limit set by the Trial Chamber for filing an amended Bosnia indictment,

NOTING that the Trial Chamber has already granted the Prosecution a one month extension on its initial Order to file an amended Bosnia indictment by 26 September 2002,

NOTING that the Prosecution attaches a draft amended Bosnia indictment containing reductions in the Prosecution case with respect to the Bosnia Indictment, and that the Prosecution anticipates additional substantive deletions to the Bosnia Indictment to follow shortly and requests further time in which to incorporate these changes into one amended indictment,

CONSIDERING that it would be preferable to work from one amended indictment, rather than incrementally amended indictments, and that crime base issues concerning the Bosnia part of these proceedings have not yet been led in evidence, and therefore no prejudice flows to the accused or the Trial Chamber from granting the further extension of time,

PURSUANT TO RULE 54 of the Rules of Procedure and Evidence of the International Tribunal

HEREBY ORDERS the Prosecution to file an Amended Bosnia Indictment by 24 November 2002.

 

Done in English and French, the English text being authoritative.
