The terms of 11 of the permanent judges who are currently serving in the ICTR chambers will expire on 24 May.According to the letter from the Tribunal President, which contains the request for the extension of terms, proceedings in the cases in question, with one exception, are well advanced. If the judges concerned had not been allowed to continue their work, it would have been necessary to start the trials anew with fresh panels of judges and to order the rehearing of witnesses and the representation of arguments. read more
