ADC-ICT General Assembly Resolution on Early Release

December 12, 2019

 

At the ADC-ICT General Assembly, which was held on 7 December 2019, a Resolution was unanimously passed which requested the President of the IRMCT to apply the established jurisprudence of the ad hoc tribunals and the Mechanism as to early release and treat all convicted persons with uniformity. It also requests the President of the Mechanism to expedite all pending and future submissions on early release, commutation of sentence and pardon and render all decisions in a timely manner.

 

The Resolution was passed by the General Assembly as there are many outstanding applications for early release by convicted persons who have served beyond two-thirds of their sentence, which was the well-established threshold for release at the ICTY, ICTR and the Mechanism.
