ICTR Releases Easy-to-Use CD-ROM


In 2001, the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) created its first complete CD-ROM--the "ICTR Basic Documents and Case Law 1995-2000". The Legal Library and Reference Section of the Tribunal produced the CD-ROM to heighten understanding and appreciation of the distinguished nature of its work. Dedicated to the memory of the first ICTR President, Judge Laity Kama, the compilation is the first to be published by an international criminal jurisdiction and therefore stands as the Tribunal's major donation to the work of the International Criminal Court. It is a tribute to United Nations work towards the establishment of an International Criminal Justice System.

The CD-ROM is organized in a way that is easy to navigate and follow. Users can run the included search engine using their web browser. This makes it easy to quickly access, in English and French, information and other data on the ICTR from all over the web by simply browsing or using key words. Users will have access to over 1,800 documents, including ICTR decisions and basic texts, and United Nations documents on the Tribunal. Other documents include the ICTR Library's Quarterly Bibliography and press releases. A handbook for journalists includes a valuable listing of contact addresses, past and present ICTR members, guidelines and facilities for the media, as well as statements from Secretary-General Kofi Annan about the role of the ICTR. These records are available as either PDF files or Microsoft Word documents. An index to ICTR decisions is also readily available.
