dc.description.abstractIn 2000, 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) instituted internal reforms and saw an increase in the number of so-called high profile accused persons anticipated to stand trial. The International Criminal Tribunal for the Prosecution of Persons Responsible for Genocide and Other Serious Violations of International Humanitarian Law Committed in the Territory of Rwanda and Rwandan Citizens Responsible for Genocide and Other Such Violations Committed in the Territory of Neighbouring States between 1 January and 31 December 1994 (ICTR) delivered two judgements involving convictions for genocide and crimes against humanity. On 30 November, the Security Council, in an effort to expedite the Tribunals' cases, established a pool of ad litem judges in ICTY, who would serve with the permanent judges on a case-by-case basis, and enlarged the membership of the Appeals Chambers of both Tribunals. The Council amended the statutes of the Tribunals accordingly. ICTY and ICTR shared the same Chief Prosecutor and appellate chamber, but had separate Registrars and Deputy Prosecutors. The Security Council, by resolution 1315(2000) (see p. 205), requested the Secretary-General to negotiate an agreement with Sierra Leone to create an independent special court to try crimes against humanity, war crimes and other serious violations of international humanitarian law.en
