Free Teleconference - The Extradition of Ratko Mladić to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY)

Join us by telephone on Thursday, July 21, 2011, from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. EDT for a free teleconference on the extradition of Ratko Mladić to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY). The program is sponsored by the International Human Rights Committee and co-sponsored by U.S. Lawyers Practicing Abroad Committee.

The recent arrest of Mladić in Serbia and his extradition to the Hague to stand trial for war crimes has provided new work for the ICTY and affected its forecasted budget.

Linda Murnane, Chief of Court Management and Support Services, ICTY, will provide discussion, and William Dunlap, Professor, Quinnipiac University School of Law, will moderate. Ms. Murnane will discuss the arrest of Mladić; obligation of States to cooperate; legal process of transferring the accused; impressions of ICTY at time of capture; how Mladić's capture has affected ICTY's budget; and what happens next.

Ms. Murnane will also discuss her experience serving as ICTY’s Senior Legal Officer, Chief of Court Management and Support Services, and former Acting Head of Chambers. She will describe the different approaches to criminal conduct in war that are handled at ICTY and the U.S. Air Force where she previously served for ten years as a military judge.

A 30-minute question and answer period will follow Ms. Murnane’s presentation.

Ms. Murnane’s views do not represent the official position of the United Nations or the ICTY.
