ADC-ICT Issues Press Release on Lack of Gender Representation on List of Nominations for Judges at t


On 26 November 2018, the ADC-ICT issued a Press Release expressing its deep regret at the lack of gender representation on the list of nominations for the judges at the UN International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (IRMCT).


The United Nations General Assembly has issued a list of solely male candidates for the election of judges to the UN International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (IRMCT).


The current composition of the roster of judges at the IRMCT already lacks an appropriate gender representation, having predominately male judges with only five women out of 22 judges on the Bench. The list of nominations includes 11 candidates, none of whom are women. The ADC-ICT expresses its deep regret at this practice and calls upon the General Assembly to start the nomination process anew.
