Title:Int'l Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals Progress of Work | Security Council | United Nations

Briefing by Judge Graciela Gatti Santana, President of the IRMCT on International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals. The President of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (Mechanism), Judge Graciela Gatti Santana, today presented the Mechanism’s twenty-fourth progress report, as well as its fifth review report, to the United Nations Security Council (Council) in New York. President Gatti Santana began her address by expressing deep gratitude for the Council’s enduring support to the Mechanism and noting that this year marks Kwibuka30, the 30th Commemoration of the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi in Rwanda. She observed that this solemn act of remembrance not only brings focus to the 100 days of horror that beset Rwanda, but also reveals that the seeds of ethnic division that grew into genocidal violence had been sown long before. In this context, President Gatti Santana remarked that the justice cycle needed to confront the resulting atrocities is likewise long and requires sustained support. She reiterated that justice does not end with the delivery of a final judgement, and that the Mechanism’s remaining functions demand the same diligence, humanity, and fairness as trials and appeals, to ensure the credibility of the judicial process set in motion by the Council when it established the ad hoc Tribunals. The President assured the Council that, following its transition to a truly residual institution, the Mechanism is “steadily advancing on the path of completion”. After explaining the Mechanism’s future planning activities and efforts to reduce its organizational footprint and streamline its operations, she spoke of the important work the Mechanism still has to do, which is “substantial and unprecedented among international and internationalized tribunals” and requires sufficient resources.
