Encyclopedia on the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda: Volume 4

Pauline Nyiramasuhuko Case Part 3/3

Edited by: K. Martens

Recognizing that serious violations of humanitarian law were committed in Rwanda, and acting under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, the UN Security Council created the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) by resolution 955 of November 8, 1994. The ICTR was established for the prosecution of persons responsible for genocide and other serious violations of international humanitarian law committed in the territory of Rwanda between January 1, 1994 and December 31, 1994. The ICTR may also deal with the prosecution of Rwandan citizens responsible for genocide and other such violations of international law committed in the territory of neighboring States during the same period. To present, 44 people have been accused in 35 judgments. This fourth volume includes the final documents on the Pauline Nyiramasuhuko case. (Series: Encyclopedia on the ICTR - Vol. 4)
